So, after switching over to the new server all of the sudden everything was hanging every time a comment was entered. I couldn’t figure it out for quite some time. I looked at all the error logs to no avail. I noticed that it worked for one site but not the other. What was it????
It was this seemingly unrelated message about sending an email:
Feb 23 23:55:21 topbarbee sendmail: My unqualified host name (topbarbee) unknown; sleeping for retryFeb 23 23:56:21 topbarbee sendmail: unable to qualify my own domain name (topbarbee) — using short nameFeb 23 23:56:21 topbarbee sendmail: My unqualified host name (topbarbee) unknown; sleeping for retry
Not sure why it references sendmail since that’s off but whatever. Finally! Once I made the connection (a few hours later) a quick Google shows you need to update you /etc/hosts for both the internal and external IP address! I was missing the internal bit.
