Page is missing error

I have a new install on a VPS that gives the error “This page is missing. Are you sure it was ever here?”

I can log in, which then leads to a writing page. When I hit publish get the error. See screenshot for log.

Thoughts? The tests post appear to be in the database based on post count.


Here is what webpage looks like:

I’m guessing that the username / blog alias got inserted in the database as Doug (with a capital D). Then WriteFreely always redirects visitors to the lowercase version of the URL, so that’s coming up as a 404.

How did you initially create the user, through the web interface or the command line?

I created the user via the interface.

I’m a bit confused over the users: does the SQL admin name have to be the same as the Admin user configured in the ini? I might have fouled this up.

Thank you for the assistance!

Update: changed user name to ‘doug’ and everything works.

Is this the solution? Are no upper case user names allowed?


This happened on my instance as well btw…
