You just spent an hour writing up a new lengthy post for your WordPress blog that explains the migration habits of monarch butterflies in great detail, and finally hit publish.
You take a look at the post to see how it looks, but what’s that? It wont show! What’s happening? Is my site getting hacked? Maybe, but before you jump to that conclusion, try this solution on for size.

Open your favorite PHP editor, and take a look at wp-config.php ( If you don’t know what that means, it might be best to have someone do it for you . . . )
Take a look at the line that reads (you may have to add the line with the other ini_set’s):
and change the number to something large like 4,294,967,296 (This is the limitation in most databases):
