WordPress Publish Button Missing: 1&1, Akismet and SQL

Posted by in Technology

Last month I [intlink id=”2831″ type=”post”]wrote about an error[/intlink] on this site that caused me to start fresh: the Publish button was missing from WordPress and you couldn’t post anything. Here’s a screenshot of the error. At the time I couldn’t locate a fix for the problem, but last week the same thing happened to my wife’s site so that caused me to have a closer look.

WordPress Error 500 on 1&1 Web Hosting

Posted by in Technology

Early this week one of my plugins had an upgrade available but when I clicked to upgrade automatically I received the following: Error 500 – Internal Server Error.  Didn’t give it much thought and tried to log into this site last night and after entering my credentials received the same error: now it was serious.
