Hello everybody.

I have a hosted Wordpress blog installation which had a fine working rss feed until recently.

For the last days the feed's not working!

Hte browser does not detect it and i receive a "404 Not Found error" page.

Have a ny ideas on the cause of the problem and any possible solution?

PS: I recently upgraded to Wordpress 2.1.

Thank you

Welcome to WebmasterWorld nikos. The 404 Not Found error in this instance indicates that when you upgraded WordPress you changed or removed the mod_rewrite (URL rewriting) rules which usually set the RSS feed as being under the
/feed/ subdirectory.

You will probably see that your RSS feed is still available under http://www.example.com[b]/wp-rss2.php[/b] - so you will need to re-establish the rewrite to make it work under /feed/ again.
