  1. WP v 3.1.2

    Thematic v

    Nuetica Plus v 1.5.1

    Active Plugins:

    Askimet v 2.5.3

    AntiVirus v 1

    AudioPlayer v

    Contact Form 7 v 2.4.4

    FB Comments for WP v 3.1.3

    MobilePress v 1.1.5

    WP.Com Stats v 1.8.1

    WP Stats Dashboard v 2.6.1

    Here are the warnings from AntiVirus Manual Scan:

    1) /themes/thematic/header.php >Line 10 thematic_head_profile();

    2) /themes/thematic/functions.php > line 86 (THEMELIB . '/extensions/theme-options.php') > line 89 (THEMELIB . '/legacy/deprecated.php'); > line 92 (THEMELIB . '/extensions/widgets.php'); >line 95 (THEMELIB . '/extensions/header-extensions.p > line 98 (THEMELIB . '/extensions/content-extensions. > line 101 (THEMELIB . '/extensions/comments-extensions > Line 104 (THEMELIB . '/extensions/discussion-extensio > Line 107 (THEMELIB . '/extensions/widgets-extensions. > Line 110 (THEMELIB . '/extensions/discussion.php'); > Line 113 (THEMELIB . '/extensions/sidebar-extensions. > Line 116 (THEMELIB . '/extensions/footer-extensions.p . > Line 119 (THEMELIB . '/extensions/dynamic-classes.php > Line 122 (THEMELIB . '/extensions/helpers.php'); > Line 125 (THEMELIB . '/extensions/shortcodes.php'); > Line 145 ($locale_file);

    In the past the site has crashed numerous times before the last big WP update. Since then I have updated all other frameworks and themes. We have not had a crash in a while and back up regularly but I would like to get rid of the warnings altogether. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. In the past when the blog would crash I would just upload the last back up to my off site server space. The last time I had to actually disable the plug in folder to get it back online. Now it is working well. I recently deleted all the comments and spam comments.

    Again Thanks for any advice on how to get my blog back into tip top health and keep it there.

  2. i don't know anything about viruses in thematic, but this is definitely a case of 'just download it again' versus trying to figure out what went wrong.

    oh and you should get thematic 0.9.8:

  6. You will not get rid of those warnings.

    "thematic_head_profile();" is one example it balks at. Specifically the 'file' part of that function call. Doesn't like 'require_once'.

    I have the following in my functions.php:

    //add_action( 'all', create_function( '', 'var_dump( current_filter() );' ) );

    It's commented out, yet it doesn't like 'create_function'.

    I appreciate what it's trying to do, but it isn't infallible and is going to warn you of possible problems and is -definitely- going to get confused.

    Ignore the warnings (the Thematic ones anyway), or de-activate it.

  7. thanks Jeff! so basically just keep backups as i have been doing, and most likely it was a rouge plug in causing the site crash?

    thanks again for the insight. im still not versed in php so its hard for me to decipher what the warnings are trying to tell me.

  8. also is there a better antivirus plug? or should i just deactivate it and know that all is most likely well and as before stated it is/was most likely a plug in that caused the crash?

  9. It's hard to say why your site crashed without more details. Obviously your best defense is backups as you are doing. I run off a unix based system and have shell scripts that log into the remote webserver and download both MySQL dumps and full site backups automagically at predetermined intervals so that I don't have to remember to do it.

    I don't use Virus plugins and have since de-activated the one you were using, but that's your call. Keeping WordPress up to date and backups are my defense. (not that I've really needed it)
