Trouble Accessing Site on Phone and Different Browsers (10 posts)

    I created a site rogeranthonyart.com, hosted on godaddy, and I'm having the hardest time pulling it up on browsers outside of my cached Firefox one. Most browsers (phone, IE, Chrome, Safari) direct the site to the godaddy host page:

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/54k34bcvr69uhdo/image%281%29.png (mobile)

    Could you please help? Not sure what to do at this point, Godaddy says that it deals with the htaccess file (which they do not provide support for) and advised me to consult with you.

    Please let me know if you can provide any assistance, I can provide FTP login info, if needed.

    can you paste the htaccess file into the forums? (in backticks preferably)

    not sure what backticks mean, can I send and upload in zipfile:

    Ok - so the first thing you want to do is disable the caching software that's generating this htaccess stuff - I think it's causing problems. What caching plugins are you using on your site?

  5. eaventures

    I spoke to the designer of the theme, they stated that there is no caching software applied to this and need to contact my hosting provider.

    My question to you is what specifically do I ask GoDaddy because I've been going back and forth with them about this for the past couple of weeks.

    The first thing i'd recommend is to back up the htaccess file, then delete it from your root directory. If the problem is, in fact, your ht access file this will allow you to get to the /wp-admin dashboard. If you can get there, go to Settings -> Permalinks, and click save on your desired setting.

    Ok not sure what this actually means or how to approach this. Are you saying that I need to delete the htaccess file?

    Can I just rename it to something else? Also, what I am I adjusting in the Permalinks setting and will this solve the problem?

  8. Bryan Purcell

    Yes - that will work. Rename it, then go the Settings -> Permalinks and change the setting to "Default." Check the frontend of the site, and see if you're able to load the site. If so, set up the permalinks according to your preferences.

    Awesome! I think it works now!

    So apparently is does no work... changing the settings -> permalinks created a new htaccess file and it worked on my computer, but when I log to other computers, it takes me here : http://rogeranthonyart.com/?reqp=1&reqr=

    Please assist.

    [Please don't bump]
