Wordpress 2.7 + 406 Errors


Recommended Posts

I've started a new blog on Wordpress 2.7 at http://www.deadpan.net/caco/ and I keep running into a recurring 406 error. Everything appears to be working properly until I go into the latest blog entry. From there, clicking any link on the sidebar or trying to post a comment to that entry earns an error saying: "Not Acceptable

An appropriate representation of the requested resource (((the named resource varies depending on what I was trying to do))) could not be found on this server.


Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."


My research has led me to believe it's a problem with mod security but I'm way out of my depth trying to figure it out. Most fixes I've found point to the .htaccess file and I think I have mine set up appropriately, based on what I've read. My .htaccess file is in the blog's root directory and it reads:


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

# END WordPress

<IfModule mod_security.c>
SecFilterEngine Off
SecFilterScanPOST Off


I think I read that this file should actually be in the wp-admin folder, but when I tried it there things really went wonky -- the blog "front page" looks fine, but everything leads to a blank page.


Can anyone offer suggestions on how to fix this? Thanks...

I too don't see any errors. Maybe you need to clear your cache for your browser. Press CTRL + F5 to clear it and try again.


Huh. Well that's wacky -- now it's working. Almost.


When I wrote my post here I was having problems with the most recent post, the one titled "Echo 32." Now there's a new one up after that, and you guys are right, everything's working fine on the new one. Also on the first one. But on Echo 32 I'm still having those problems. So it looks like the problem is with that one individual post. That's weird...
