I put my site online a week ago, and .htaccess/SEO and URLs seem to be working fine on this standalone server beside me. But I've been looking at the Apache2 logs and it seems that there's a lot of errors being thrown up by google, msn and yahoo bots (the only 3 I let in through the front end.
Specifically, there's a ..../2004 and a .... /2005 (both with no further URL qualification) URL being rejected quite a few times. Since I did a lot of test articles before putting up the site, I'm thinking that somehow there's some extra or bad entries in the .htaccess file. Having 2004 articles is fine, since I copied/created some from my old Mambo) site.
The permalink structure that I have is: /%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/
Is it possible to clean out the .htaccess file of all existing entries for WP and let it "start over" again rebuilding up the article translation list the next time the articles are requested, without fouling up anything, or is there some other way to do it? TIA.
