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
