'Manage' in Admin screen results in 404? (7 posts)

    Have exhausted many possiblities:
    Have deleted files.
    Re-uploaded everything bar the config file.
    But the manage link in the admin interface dies with a '404' "The page cannot be found" message.

    It's looking for '/wp-admin/edit.php'.

    Platform: Windows Server 2003/IIS.
    Browser: IE6 and FF1.0

    Is that file there? are you sure its not looking for http://example.com/wp-admin/wp-admin/edit.php? that happened to me once, drove me nuts.

    I am 99.9% sure it was not this.

    It appears to bomb on Line 150,

    Hiya, did you find a fix for this? I have the same issue - it is indeed a problem with the wp-blog-header.php - my guess is something to do with IIS stops it from matching any posts so it spits out a 404 error (as the $error var is set to contain this by default until it finds posts).

    Any help fixing this greatly appreciated...

    Another IIS fix is required... Change line 20 of wp-blog-header.php to read (false === strpos($_SERVER['PATH_INFO'], '.php'))

    I have the same problem and I have tried to follow instructions above but it doesn't help. Anyone experience the same problem?
