I recently made an existing website into a WordPress multisite, and then added a new site as a subdirectory.
Note: All of this only occurs in the one subsite.
define( 'CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS', false ); to my
wp_config.php, so I did. This enabled the styling but then caused this:
Certain pages (basically anything but the dashboard) will give me a
net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET error. On Chrome, it freezes. In Firefox, it says "the connection was reset." In Safari, it gives me a blank page.
When I take the
define( 'CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS', false ); out of the
wp-config.php, it loads the pages without the styles, and provides a more specific error: the same one (
net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET) but specifically from
wp-admin/load-scripts.php. I don't have a clue as to why this might be.
On my iPhone, the error given is
ERR_INCOMPLETE_CHUNKED_ENCODING, which honestly makes it sound like it's barfing. So yeah.
This problematic subsite has no plugins enabled, and only one theme that has been working perfectly up until this point on another website.
I would provide the URL, but since the issue is 100% backend, I don't think that would be useful.
BEFORE I GET MARKED AS A DUPLICATE:
- Yes, I called my host and they both reset the server and upgraded my PHP, neither of which helped.
- Yes, I cleared my cache & tried several browsers.
- No one else's solution helped, even other answers from this website. I googled the crap out of this. I think it's a unique problem with a similar error.
