Wordpress 404 not found on links

Greetings everyone i am having an issue with speratic 404 not found on some of my sites… but no all…

I have checked the .htaccess file for the site in question kc9zhv.com
Here is what it is…

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

# END WordPress

So… Kinda lost as to what to do…

Their is multiple sites on one machine here my httpd.conf looks kinda like this…

Here are some other sites i have that seem to be working at the moment…



http://ilhamradio.org/ <— This site is under heavy construction at the moment…

Sites that have not yet been fixed or setup since my crash…




I hope this helps out… But Really confused why one site is giving my so much grief… I wonder what would happen if i reinstalled wordpress in that directory… I don’t want things to explode…

Sorry for the late response, I hope @stephdl @drakuel @fasttech @Foa @dnutan @Sebastian @clinton may lend a hand here

The problem could be in htaccess try to replace

BEGIN WordPress

RewriteEngine On RewriteBase / RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L] RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

END WordPress


BEGIN WordPress

Options +FollowSymLinks -MultiViews
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

END WordPress

Or check here:


@Sebastian, I think you hit it on the head.
The How to was the only thing I could think of.

Ok so none of the above seemed to work after reboot since we are dealing with other issues as well including the Nethserver not understanding what my default gateway is etc… I have had to do this special script to run after reboot… Here is what i came up with

crontab -e
@reboot /network.sh

Here is an example of what my script looks like

sleep 30s
ifconfig eth1 netmask
sleep 2s
route add dev eth1
route add default gw eth1
sleep 2s
service httpd stop
cp -f /root/httpdbackup /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
chmod 555 /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
sleep 1s
service httpd start

All above are example of how my ip structure is… My default gateway is completely separate from my ip as show above i know sounds kinda crazy but is common in OVH… We have not been able to successfully set our ip using your control panel for some reason…

Above is an example script only… We are still testing it…

If anyone knows how to properly do the above ip in nethserver that would be great I would much rather fix the issue than to patch it on reboot… I am going to start a new support ticket on this with different title…

For some reason I was not able to get the same results i did copy this into each of my wordpress .htaccess files…

In httpd.conf


there isn’t index.php

It could be a problem ?

Could you give me a db networks show screen ?!.

Sorry for the late reply i have been very busy with some local server transitions here at the house… Thanks for pointing out the index.php in httpd.conf I will have a look at it…

When i typed db networks show screen i got nothing…

I am confused at what you were asking… If you wish i can in private message kinda explain with greater detail of my ip configurations if thats what you wish to know…
