Permalink Month and Name causing CGI Error

  • hi I have several different 2.5.1 WordPress Blogs that are having the same issue. They each use themes we found at themes.wordpress.org. What’s happening is that if I select month and name permalinks instead of the default type, some of the pages on the site update and work fine at the new URLs and other pages generate CGI errors. They’re all in one category, there isn’t anything special about the pages that I can tell, but they don’t work. I’ve read through the forums and Docs and haven’t found anything there yet that helps. I activated Mark Jaquith’s Disable Canonical URL Redirection Plugin to see if that fixed the problem but it made no difference.

    CGI Error
    The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP headers.

    The main site I’m concerned about is http://www.hotelvegasdeals.com/
    For example, when I have permalinks set to month and name, the Cool in Vegas link in the header generates the above CGI error, but the link to Diamonds in the Desert works fine.
    I’m not sure if maybe the site index needs to be forced updated or something to make all the permalinks work?

  • oh and I also updated the index.php file in the root of the site to: require(‘wp-blog-header.php’); instead of require(‘./wp-blog-header.php’);
    That didn’t change anything at all.

    also, I’m using IIS 6 and I’ve tried http://www.keyboardface.com/IIS-Permalinks/ to no avail.

    I have the same problem. The strange think is that only some of my permalinks don’t work. The only pattern I found is that the links that generate CGI error are shorter than the links that work.

    Any idea why?
