How to Change WordPress Feed URL (3 posts)

    I recently migrated my blog from WordPress.com to a self-hosted account.

    Before, my old RSS URL was thepurplechaos.com/feed

    But now that I migrated over, the new RSS URL is thepurplechaos.com/feed/rss

    I don't know what caused it to change, maybe the theme I used? But I want to know if there is a way to revert back to the old URL. I've been searching all over forums with no answer. The only thing I come across is how to re-direct to a feedburner URL, but I want to go back to the original I used to have.

    wp-rss2.php
    this is the file that is called to get it to redirect to /feed

    as you can see it 404's
    http://thepurplechaos.com/wp-rss2.php

    so, is it present?

    Yes, I see it in my directory. When I open the file, this is the code I see..

    <?php
    /**
    * Redirects to the RSS2 feed
    * This file is deprecated and only exists for backwards compatibility
    *
    * @package WordPress
    */

    require( './wp-load.php' );
    wp_redirect( get_bloginfo( 'rss2_url' ), 301 );

    ?>

    What should I do?
