404 Everywhere! (7 posts)

    I'm having a problem similar to these year-old threads:

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/26554

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/24938

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/24280

    Every WordPress page loads fine, but if you watch the HTTP headers, it's sending an HTTP status 404.

    The resolution in those threads was downloading the newest wp-blog-header, but the one in 2.0.3 matches the one in SVN trunk.

    Here's an example:

    http://rossnotes.com/wp-rss2.php

    Any ideas?

    A little more testing: A non-wordpress PHP file dropped into my wordpress directory works fine.

    Using IE 6.0.2900, I'm not seeing any header errors.

    That's what makes it tricky, it display's fine in a browser, but if you inspect the headers, it shows a 404:

    curl -I http://rossnotes.com/wp-rss2.php
    HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found
    Date: Sat, 03 Jun 2006 15:35:08 GMT
    Server: Apache
    X-Pingback: http://rossnotes.com/xmlrpc.php
    X-Powered-By: PHP/4.3.11
    Content-Type: text/xml; charset=utf-8

    Some feed readers and agents are liberal enough to read it anyways, but many (like Feedburner) see the 404 and assume it's broken.

    The feed validator is savvy enough to warn about the HTTP error and still parse the feed:

    I know it's incredibly lame to bump my own thread up-- but I'd like to see if anyone has any ideas one last time before checking with GoDaddy support...

    I just tested it again, with all plugins off.

    One more: the issue goes away when I use the default permalink scheme.

    I'm going to stick with that for now, pending any other ideas.
