Support » Fixing WordPress » ‘NOT FOUND’ error

  • I’m new to wordpress, and I’m running into a problem with what I think is a permissions error, but I’m not sure how to fix it. I’m trying to make a page with embeded vimeo, and it previews fine, and when I go to publish it, the page link shows up, but that’s all. When I click on the link, this error comes up:

    The requested URL /animation-reel-2k8/ was not found on this server.

    I have wordpress in a wordpress folder in my web directory, and the index.php is at the root (/web). I don’t have a .htaccess file in my wordpress folder, and I’m not really sure how to create one… (windows won’t let me create a file with a name that’s just an extension.

    also, posts don’t show up after publishing…

  • my host says the folder that saves the posts and pages isn’t valid and I’m going to have to re-install… must have screwed something up initially.

    I would copy over the offending folder first before removing and installing the whole thing.

    Hey thanks for the reply – but there is nothing in there of any use… I just set up some test folders…

    I’m wondering if I need to do anything to the database – does it need to be reset as well?
