    Hi Everyone,
    I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction … my RSS is not working. It gives an error message. I don’t know when it happened but it was either when I played around with my .htaccess or when I changed the permalinks. I am completely new at all this so I don’t even know where to begin…

    I am at – http://www.iblog2.info
    Thanks in advance.

    Try temporarily setting your permalinks to this, and use no category base:


    Does the feed work now? (You may have to clear your browser’s cookies and cache).

    think that didn’t paste correctly, should be:

    [And that was strange – I had to edit it twice to make it right…. what’s %da I wonder?]

    Thanks for the help. I followed your instructions but it still does not work. Now it gives me a 404 error instead.

    The problem might have started when I tried to change the permalinks the first time. WP told me that my .htaccess was not writable and therefore could not update it them for me. So I did it manually (copying and pasting what it tells me to copy and paste)… I even changed the permissions to 666… and then to 777…

    Now when I went to change them as directed by you guys it still tells me that it is not writable. And even after changing the info on the .htaccess it does not work…

    Any other possibilities…

    Yep, something in permalinks is wacked I guess. All other feed links work fine…


    Is there anything I can do?
    Should I have the link in my sidebar go to one of those links posted by Beel in the previous post?

    Thanks again for the time…

    Use one of the above until you find the problem.

    Post the one (1), not more than one, line in your htaccess file which refers to the feed redirect.

    P.S. Let me guess, your browser is IE (just an asided – unrelated to this issue)

    Thanks Beel.
    How do I do that? What does the line look like? And do I erase all the other stuff that I have put in there for my permalinks structure?

    Once more… gracias.

    (I use Firefox… I double-check stuff on IE)

    It is the line that has “feed” in it and should redirect (as I recall) to wp-feed.php

    If you want to keep your custom permalinks, I wouldn’t delete ’em.

    Edit: I checked my old WP installation, it redirects to the index page and there are two lines, and should probably look like this:

    RewriteRule ^feed/(feed|rdf|rss|rss2|atom)/?$ /index.php?&feed=$1 [QSA,L]
    RewriteRule ^(feed|rdf|rss|rss2|atom)/?$ /index.php?&feed=$1 [QSA,L]

    Hold off on the posting if they do look like the above

    I am copying here the first few lines of my .htaccess …

    What would I change?
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^.*$ - [S=54]
    RewriteRule ^(7)/trackback/?$ /index.php?pagename=$1&tb=1 [QSA,L]
    RewriteRule ^(7)/feed/(feed|rdf|rss|rss2|atom)/?$ /index.php?pagename=$1&feed=$2 [QSA,L]
    RewriteRule ^(7)/(feed|rdf|rss|rss2|atom)/?$ /index.php?pagename=$1&feed=$2 [QSA,L]
    RewriteRule ^(7)/page/?([0-9]{1,})/?$ /index.php?pagename=$1&paged=$2 [QSA,L]

    Once again thanks for your help.

    Try copying what I posted and see if that helps. I am not versed in permalinks so don’t know what “(7)” means in your permalink structure. Anyone?

    Just an update and to close this thread:
    I simply uninstalled the whole thing. The problem had to do with my .htaccess and how it related to addon domains. The only solution I have at the moment is to get a reseller package and have a cPanel for each one of my accounts…
