Latest Members pages getting 404

  • Maxaud



    This site has been a hassle but it’s getting there.

    I’ve noticed some of the profiles go to a 404 not found page…

    Any idea where I would start to look for an issue?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Need an example page. You’ve done a good job considering BP is still pre 1.0 and there’s been a lot of changes since you started.



    seems it could take a little time to resolve the address!

    Also when you get a blank page it’s a good sign your missing template files!



    Hey Maxaud, Off topic but nice job on becoming a Showcase Site at!

    I just gave you five stars. Go BuddyPress!



    Thanks for the compliments guys. Glad to have a platforms like WordPress and BuddyPress to work off of. Thanks for the showcase Andy. gets a 404

    while works

    I don’t have the error logs on hand but I will post them later.




    Here are a couple errors in the log that look to be related to the issue.

    [Tue Mar 24 01:57:15 2009] [error] [client] script ‘/var/www/vhosts/’ not found or unable to stat

    [Tue Mar 24 01:57:55 2009] [error] [client] script ‘/var/www/vhosts/’ not found or unable to stat

    With WannaNetwork we weren’t expecting it to grow at this pace (currently 18,500k members and 450ish blogs) so we have a large database (not using the multi-db plugin as of yet though have been working on installing it. Would this be causing the issue? Could we be reaching the OS or Mysql file limits?

    Is multi-db the best choice or should we be looking at other option?

    profile.php is the wpmu profile page not the bp profile page. It shouldn’t be looking in the doc root for that anyway since it’s located in /wp-admin

    You seemed to have solved this issue since both of the links above work now.



    Yes, thanks for the follow-up.

    Some notes as to what we were dealing with:

    The site is hosted at Rackspace (for now).

    We had a tech (Dan Jeffries) from Bulldog Data (handles some server/database setups for Microsoft/Amazon/Overstock/Zoovy) log in and check out our box at Rackspace as to see why we were throwing up errors.

    1) Removed firewall rules that were hurting Apache performance by forcing connections to drop after a certain limit

    2) Turned off a series of mysql performance killers in /etc/my.cnf, the Mysql configuration file.

    – Turned off query time outs that were way too short

    – Turned off logging which amounts to a double write every time a write to the db is done.

    – Tuned several memory and connection limits

    3) Updated the amount memory that php scripts are allowed to use, which was causing new profiles/blogs not to show throwing out of memory errors

    The end result:

    -The server uses significantly less memory (~2.5GB less)

    -New blogs/profiles are now showing up.

    -The site is quicker and more responsive.

    We owe a lot of thanks to Dan for helping with this issue and fixing the numerous problems/scripts/settings that Rackspace had messed up on our box (is 15 php.ini files really neccessary?). He definately made my day.
