Do you want to solve the ‘WordPress connection Lost‘ error? well, I know, there are some posts out there with the same issue but there has not been a single solution that worked fine for anyone.
You’re getting the message “Connection lost. Saving has been disabled until you’re reconnected.” only when you are updating or publishing your post.
Even when I get the WordPress connection lost error, I also start thinking that what should I do next. If I reload this page I lost the content that I write in the post. And I did not even know how long it would take to fix.
I waited for almost 1 hour but the WordPress connection lost error still appears.
If you also faced the same problem then read the full tutorial to solve the “Connection lost. Saving has been disabled until you’re reconnected” error.
Solution 1: Disabled the Object Cache of W3 Total Cache
If you installed the W3 Total Cache Plugin then it may be the cause of this error. To resolve the connection Lost issue, I disabled the Object Cache of W3 Total Cache. It works for some people and also for me.
But since I don’t want to deactivate the object cache of the W3 Total Cache Plugin, I tried to explore it and check each option and found out that instead of deactivating the object cache, only enable wp-admin requests to be cached while the object cache is still activated.
Now the problem was fixed.
Solution 2: Check your Internet Connection
If you see this WordPress Connection lost error and you’re unable to publish or save the draft of your post then you must check your internet connection. In lots of cases, the Internet connection is the main problem of this error.
And in my case, the Internet connection is the main problem behind my WordPress connection lost error.
So, I fix my internet problem and then I complete my post without getting any WordPress connection lost error.
Solution 3: Hosting Problem
Your web host providing service may also be the reason for this error. Lots of people say that after changing their hosting service, their problem was fixed.
If there is an issue in your hosting, it is better to update or bring a change by getting a better service provider, paying a little amount will surely help you expand yourself.
So purchased the best hosting from a trusted hosting providing company. I recommend Hostgator hosting for the best performance and a 99.98% uptime guarantee.
If you have limited or low hosting service, then upgrade your plan or choose the better one to avoid the connection lost error.
If this doesn’t help solve the problem, it can be a plugin or a conflict between themes. Try to deactivate all plugins and use one of the default themes (Twenty*).
