I’ve looked through forums and can’t find an answer so if someone can help I’d really appreciate it. I have elegant grunge theme and it’s been working fine for several weeks but now when you click to leave a comment this appears:

Thanks. I am still confused. I created a .htaccess file in my root directory (is that right?). I think I’m supposed to give wordpress write access to it but I can’t figure out how. I found this: http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_File_Permissions
BUT when I right click on the index.php file there is no “file permissions” option to select. I’m pulling my hair out a little. If you could help I would appreciate it very much!
Downloaded FileZilla, right clicked .htaccess (which is empty), clicked Change File Attributes, then put in numerical value 666. I am still getting the same “page not found” error on my site. I’m trying to figure this out but if you know what to do and are willing to help that would be fantastic. Thanks for your help thus far.
I called godaddy, asked about Apache web server with the mod_rewrite module. Turns out my hosting account needed to be changed from Windows to Linux. Now everything is working! Thanks again for all your help. I would have thrown my laptop in the pool by now without it.
Next time be smarter and start in your very first post with this: “I am hosted on a Win server at godaddy…”
and then in about 2 minutes you’ll get the solution: SWITCH to Linux.
Giving as much details as it’s possible might save you a lot of frustration!
