Support » Fixing WordPress » Re: “Requested URL not found on this server” error

  • When I click on a post in my blog to look at it individually, I get this below message, instead of the page showing up. What is causing it, and more importantly, how can I fix it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Not Found
    The requested URL /a-dozen-genealogy-books-i-own/ was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
    Apache/1.3.41 Server at Port 80

  • I’m getting this, too. I hope someone knows what’s causing it 🙁

    Both of you: Read the documentation before posting!

    If I did something wrong, I am sorry. I am not a wordpress guru and all I was asking for was help.

    You didn’t do anything wrong… although the due diligence and common sense would dictate to read the documentation before messing around with things in a new script.

    And I gave you the help: everything you need to know is in the Codex article I linked to.

    The solution is simple.. @ ur wordpress directory simple give 777 permission to all files on ur root folder.. ed. all files on ur wordpress directory /www/ or public_html/

    Do NOT put 777 recursively on all your folders, unless of course you want to be hacked…

    Bad advice…

    If it’s fixed then it is file premisssion error.. later change the file permissions to secure ur web server & blog..

    I found this cropping up all of a sudden on all the pages / posts on one of my sites.

    Not Found The requested URL /linkr/get/ was not found on this server. Apache/2.2.3 (CentOS) Server at xxx.xx.xx.xx Port 80

    I also found a load of injection links hidden in the header.php file on the same site, which I manually removed.

    I had a look in the footer.php file and found this piece of code at the bottom of the file:

    include ('foter.php');

    I also found the file “foter.php” in the theme directory (clever huh? looks like footer.php). Anyway, neither the bit of code or the foter.php file were in the original theme files.

    I deleted the code above and the foter.php file and the unwanted wording went away.

    My guess is that it is related to the injected links in the header.php file – although they could be separate issues.

    Of course some toxic bot must have put it there in the first place and so simply removing it is only going to deal with the symptom. I am going to go through the site with a fine tooth-comb and the previous advice about file access permissions would seem to be a good place to start.
