    I've just made a new wordpress blog, bought a domain and using a free host (000_Webhost). Having a couple of problems:

    Firstly, if I click on the (About) page, I get a 000_Webhost error
    Also, I just installed a sitemap to my blog, but when I try to access it (mysite.com/sitemap.xml) I get the same error message
    The same with my feed (mysite.com/feed)

    Can anybody help me out? I'm kind of new to wordpress.
    Thanks.

    It seems that you are having problems with your .htaccess

    the .htaccess file(s) are on your hosting. FTP to your acount and check there. Normally there is an htaccess file in your root directory and one htacces in your wordpress directory. Also check your file permissions. On most hosting the permissions are:

    Your root folder 750
    all other folders 755
    files 644

    I'm pretty sure it is possible because I know someone that has one hosted there.
    Anybody else got any help for me?
    Thanks, appreciated.
