_transient database entries

    Syahir,

    I am getting some recurring database entries. They are in the wp_options table.

    Most all begin with _transient and include the following variations:

    1. _transient_feed_mod

    2. _transient_timeout_feed_mod

    3. _transient_feed

    4. _transient_timeout_feed

    5. _transient_dash

    6. _transient_timeout_dash

    7. _site_transient_theme_roots

    8. _site_transient_timeout_theme_roots

    I was working on my plugin and noticed these entries.

    Any idea where they might originate from?

    It’s most likely something I’ve done. Just not sure what.

    Thanks.

    Those are from WordPress caching mechanism (hence the “transient”). It’s completely normal. Don’t worry about it.

    Okay. It seems there are about 1000 of these entries. Harmless?

    I also noticed by RSS feed within the dashboard isn’t loading. I receive this error:

    RSS Error: A feed could not be found at http://blogsearch.google.com/blogsearch_feeds?scoring=d&ie=utf-8&num=10&output=rss&partner=wordpress&q=link:http://www.joshlobe.com/. A feed with an invalid mime type may fall victim to this error, or SimplePie was unable to auto-discover it.. Use force_feed() if you are certain this URL is a real feed.

    Possibly related?

    Yep. Though some clever hackers might hide their less benevolent entry in there.

    As for the RSS feed error, I don’t think it’s related, but I don’t know what might be causing it either.

    Hah… yeah I’ve seen a few “less benevolent” entries, that’s for sure. But, the more I learn the better I get at being pro-active… rather than re-active.

    Okay, I’ll continue digging. Thank you for your quick responses!
