    Hi,
    All good hearts who help others!
    I'm devastated about this:
    I can get to my site and admin. site well, all shows perfect.
    But when try to open ANY content, from either side I'm getting same message, copied here:
    This was the reason why I didn't get single person visit my site today, which I found out in my stats. first thing.Nobody could open any content. I contacted server and they told me, all is well on their side.
    Please help!!!!!
    Forever thankful,
    Maya

    I'd probably start by deleting or renaming the .htaccess file. If that gets things back working again, re-generate it by re-saving your Permalinks (Admin > Settings > Permalinks).

    Should be in the root directory of your site.

    I just realize that server people yesterday night helped me with this file but it was as it started originally, I couldn't get into my site, neither admin. All was OK I could log in, so I went to sleep.
    Today I discovered that NOW I can't get into posts. So they fixes log in, but since then this is problem. Today they insist all is fine on their side. Now the point is, is this file on server only, or it is part of every post? Sorry if my questions are silly.

    Don't be afraid to ask questions... it's how we learn stuff. :-)

    Yep, it's on the server. htaccess basically lets you control how the server responds when it gets a request for a file. You can set up redirects to other pages, block people from accessing your stuff, helping you make fancy URLs (like Permalinks) and so on. It's quite a powerful little file. When you save your Permalinks, WordPress will create an htaccess if it doesn't already exist. When there's a problem with it though, or if it's configured wrongly, you can start getting all kinds of seemingly odd errors.

    Thanks and Glory to alism!!!

    I still cannot believe it, but this is all it took, per your advice:(BTW I thought I would have to call server again, but...)

    I went to : admin>settings>permalinks and....

    just put "dot" from option "day date, month... etc.
    into one below and saved the change.
    there was just a day skipped, which is OK with me, I don't need day posted, really, in permalink.

    Now without expecting anything I just simply gave a try... and
    Voila! all works fine.
    As I always say: "Knowledge is power!"
    Thank you so very much!!!

    Best regards,
    Maya

    Yeah, with your help:)
    Thanks again!
    Listen, please do not think I'm pest with another question. I'm OK, don't worry, just asking...and shall not be "stalking:)"
    All really works just fine, besides this and it is very obnoxious and time consuming and it started just some days ago. I write a lot and add things, so it's a hassle:
    It is my "UPDATE"
    When I click on update it takes really FOREVER till its done and instead of showing "post undated" 3 things could happen:

    1.either blank screen shows and in a browser just behind mydomain/admin/php.post or something like that and it causes to mess my text in one "bunch." its simply disturbed from its order, as I had it a with spacing etc. So I must checking it that way and go to my site directly from admin. and back and then I see it usually stayed OK, it could be or not updated...

    2. During updating process some dialog box occasionally shows up from Firefox:
    Opening post php.
    which is plain text document from http://mydomain
    Choices are: text edit
    save
    Options: save and cancel. Well, I really do not need neither, (neiher that stupid box to see) my correction was made, I just need update... so I click cancel a again wait forever till update finishes, which might be really NEVER. Sometimes is does and then right page shows saying "post updated, view post. Sometimes I must CX that box several time and click on update again, and again waiting if it updates.

    3. Sometimes after that long wait update finishes, but there is message about update being done missing. But when I check update, it is done. At least that is welcomed.

    Well there is still number 4. Once in a while all is done well as before, nicely with all as it should be. ??? which seems strange... if it is capable to do it right, why not always?
    So this is my "headache" and if you wish to think about it, now it is yours too... (just kidding)
    Thanks "alism" really, but if its some problem you never heard of, its OK...
    Best regards,
    M.
