I have a rss.php, myYahoo doesn't recognize it
it's a valid feed too

the feed is correct, and it even validates but somehow Yahoo doesn't recognize it.
"We couldn't find the RSS file you asked for
http:\\www.mydomain.com/rss.php"

do I have to make it .xml? I see many other sites who have the .php, or .aspx extension and it works. What am I missing?
if needed, how would I go about making it .xml?

thanks in advance,

Sounds like a 404 error to me.

Are the two backslashes in your URL above deliberate or could that be the problem?

I thought so too, but I access it via the same exact url, and feedburner sees it too.

Maybe Y! doesn't recognize it because of the extension?

Is it better to go through Feedburner regardless? I have about 30 categories, each with their own feed and oen for the main page.

I had this problem the first day I submitted my feed. I was about to email Yahoo! when (within 24 hours) the problem went away.

Hi,
you just submitted it here [e.my.yahoo.com...] and waited?

Yes. Actually I submitted it twice. I got the same error message both times, but the following day it had indeed been added to My Yahoo. Of course, whatever problem I had may be different to yours...

The initial non-recognition may be because your server is identifying its php as an HTML page instead of as an xml page. If you open up your php page in Firefox and it just displays as text, you can tell that this is the issue (IE isn't as picky).

To solve this issue, the php script needs to use the header('mime-type=text/xml'); command as the first thing, to identify the output as XML and not HTML.
