[resolved] Esmi Instructed A New Topic Be Started -- Please Help With RSS Feed (8 posts)

    I've searched and tried many things to try to solve my problem with feedburner's rss feed.

    Feedburner says my original feed is now invalid. I cannot resync it.
    An "Error 403" displays when I click resync.

    I've tried fiddling with my .htaccess and deactivating many plugins.

    I have a feeling the problem may be in my .htaccess, but I'm not savvy when it comes to that area.

    Hopefully, someone may be able to help me out.

    Thanks.

    The error 403 comes up for your site in general.

    Why do you feel this is related to .htaccess? Did you modify that file in any way?

    I tried following a lynda.com tutorial tought by an editor of perishible press.

    Here's some of the code added. But I removed it, and still have the same problem.

    Some of the other code instructed to add includes:

    # PROTECT WP-CONFIG
    <Files wp-config.php>
    Order Allow,Deny
    Deny from all
    </Files>

    # SECURE WP-ADMIN
    <FilesMatch ".*">
    Order Deny,Allow
    Deny from all
    Allow from 24.192.255.110
    </FilesMatch>

    # PROTECT install.php
    <Files install.php>
    Order Allow,Deny
    Deny from all
    Satisfy all
    </Files>

    I've only recently had this problem though.

    That second block of code... which is supposed to secure wp-admin, you put that in your main .htaccess file? Or in an .htaccess file within the wp-admin folder?

    If you put it in the main .htaccess, I think that might be the problem - you denied everything. You could see your site, but I couldn't --- which makes sense because you allowed your own IP. And feedburner also has a different IP, they couldn't get to your feed

    Delete all that stuff for now.

    Then wait. Or restart your server if you have the ability.
    Some hosts can take a couple hours to pick up on .htaccess changes

    I will do that, and wait.

    I appreciate the help, thanks.

    Yes, that did the trick.

    I guess I was just being too impatient.

    Thanks again.

    Sure, glad you are back in!
    Gotta be real careful with that .htaccess, it's pretty easy to shut a site down in there
