feed/rss feed/atom in error logs

  • I am new to Word Press. I was just checking my error logs and see that some spiders are trying to locate /feed/rss2 and /feed/atom/ which do not exist in my installation of WordPress 1.2.1. Am I supposed to do something to create these?
    thanks 🙂

  • Are you using .htaccess rules? Because if you use them, they’re virtually created by Apache.

    If you use Permalinks (or .htaccess rules, as mentioned above), then /wp-rss2.php will be changed to /feed/rss2/. The same goes for the rest of your feeds.

    Thanks for the replies. I’m using the Permanlinks htaccess that was automatically created.

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index.php/archives/category/(.*)/(feed|rdf|rss|rss2|atom)/?$ /wp-feed.php?category_name=$1&feed=$2 [QSA]
    RewriteRule ^index.php/archives/category/?(.*) /index.php?category_name=$1 [QSA]
    RewriteRule ^index.php/archives/author/(.*)/(feed|rdf|rss|rss2|atom)/?$ /wp-feed.php?author_name=$1&feed=$2 [QSA]
    RewriteRule ^index.php/archives/author/?(.*) /index.php?author_name=$1 [QSA]
    RewriteRule ^index.php/archives/?([0-9]{4})?/?([0-9]{1,2})?/?([0-9]{1,2})?/?([_0-9a-z-]+)?/?([0-9]+)?/?$ /index.php?year=$1&monthnum=$2&day=$3&name=$4&page=$5 [QSA]
    RewriteRule ^index.php/archives/?([0-9]{4})/([0-9]{1,2})/([0-9]{1,2})/([_0-9a-z-]+)/(feed|rdf|rss|rss2|atom)/?$ /wp-feed.php?year=$1&monthnum=$2&day=$3&name=$4&feed=$5 [QSA]
    RewriteRule ^index.php/archives/?([0-9]{4})/([0-9]{1,2})/([0-9]{1,2})/([_0-9a-z-]+)/trackback/?$ /wp-trackback.php?year=$1&monthnum=$2&day=$3&name=$4 [QSA]
    RewriteRule ^feed/?([_0-9a-z-]+)?/?$ /wp-feed.php?feed=$1 [QSA]
    RewriteRule ^comments/feed/?([_0-9a-z-]+)?/?$ /wp-feed.php?feed=$1&withcomments=1 [QSA]

    My categories work with the mod_rewrite, but the rss links don’t.
    I appreciate any advice 🙂

    URL please…

    Thanks! The address is http://www.hoodiascam.com

    I suspect it is a problem because you have index.php in the permalink structure. This, I believe, has been addressed in other threads. Perhaps you can find them by googling the site.

    Don’t put index.php in your permalink structure if you’re using htaccess.

    Your feed does function correctly, as http://www.hoodiascam.com/wp-rss2.php is working. Can you make permalinks work without /index.php/ in there? Use a permalink rule like /archives/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/

    Thanks very much! Removing the index.php from the permalinks structure, then uploading the new htaccess file did the trick 🙂
