Been trying to fathom out a peculiarity afflicting the blog I'm hoping to launch soon.
Basically, I'm able to view the blog when I go direct to the IP (in this case, 126.96.36.199:81/blog/) but when I go to the subdomain mapped to the IP (blog.aboutrci.co.uk) I get a 404 error.
I've spoken to the tech guys at the company where our dedicated server is located and they said it's got something to do with the way the blog has been set up. I contested that it couldn't be, since I can resolve the blog to the direct IP address, but they're adamant it's the set up of the blog.
They said: "If you upload a index.htm page to the subdomain, you will see it is working correctly so I would assume something that WordPress is doing in it's .htaccess file is causing the 404 error."
I checked the .htaccess file and it's blank.
