Some Odd Buddypress Behavior

  • Casey Trowbridge


    I’m not sure how to classify what just happened, so I’ll just explain with as much detail as I can and hopefully it will be useful.

    A few minutes ago, I was on my site: and was attempting to access my members profile at

    The first attempt to do this resulted in a 500 internal server error. So I went straight to to click on my name directly from there and ended up on a 404 page not found. I then attempted to view my friend’s page at and it was there and alright.

    I should also note that while things were loading it took a longer time, especially in the buddypress areas as the wp-admin page and the frontpage featuring my wp blog loaded normally.

    Then all of a sudden the speed levels were back up and I could access my members page just fine.

    This makes me believe that there was something funky going on with the server. I’m on the godaddy shared hosting delux plan. I don’t think the traffic to my own site would’ve been enough to cause issues, there were only 3 members online at the time according to my output and probably around 7 visitors. Although it may not hurt to look in to upgrading to a different server plan…

    As I was typing a blog post to alert people that I was aware of the slow moving site, when I published I got this error:

    Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /home/content/b/i/g/bigblitz/html/wp-content/plugins/buddypress-ajax-chat/bp-chat.php:480)

    in /home/content/b/i/g/bigblitz/html/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 868

    but that strikes me as being unrelated to the problem I’ve described above.

    I’m using WordPress 2.9.2, the latest version of BP and a number of different plugins.
