wp-trackback.php gives a 404 error in 1.5? (11 posts)

    I have searched, but the solutions I find on this site involve files that I don't have (such as wp-comments.php). I assume that is because the posts I've found so far aren't for 1.5.

    I'm totally new to WP, and need to figure out how to fix this problem. Both the trackback and rss links just come up 404.

    Can someone give me a pointer?

    Oh, sorry. I kind of assumed that this was a common problem and no more amplifying info would be needed.

    You know what they say about assuming.....


    Plain jane setup at the moment....

    There's no 'h' in my name or domain name, but I'll assume that's a typo.

    When I use your links (after deleting the 'h'), they come up fine as well.

    My problem is that when I click the trackback or RSS link for an entry, I get a 404 error.

    Sorry...I wasn't that clear.

    Yeah, that is a typo. Sorry about that.

    I just went to jo(-h)nwatson.ca, and both comments rss and trackback links came up fine (that is, trackbacks didn't really *come up*, but it didn't cause a 404). Figured out the missing files?

    Really? It's doesn't work for me.

    Let's be clear: I'm talking about the Trackback URI link that is present on the bottom of a post, correct?

    Like this link here is off one such page:


    and it 404's on me. Does it work for you?

    What missing files, by the way?

    That url works (in the sense that I don't get a 404). As does:


    As for "missing files", a 404 error is just that - file not found. So on first glance I would think wp-trackback.php and wp-commentsrrs2.php were not in your blog's root directory. But I access them just fine.

    Perhaps this is a file cache issue? Try clearing your browser's disk cache, closing the browser, starting it up again, and returning to your site.

    Oh..well...it's an IE thing. How interesting. I get what you get with Firefox.

    I wonder if it's just this computer I'm on..I'll have to try it at home.
