File does not exist: /var/www/vhosts/domain.com/httpdocs/wp-content

Hello,

I've got a ton of these errors in the error log (different ips):
File does not exist: /var/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/httpdocs/wp-content

I can only replicate the error if I go directly to: http://www.mydomain.com/wp-content/

The blog is located in: http://www.mydomain.com/blog/
This makes it more perplexing because the wp-content folder is within the /blog/ folder.

I've looked through the settings and I can't find a reference to this link.

Here is the htaccess file that resides in the /blog/ folder.
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /blog/
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /blog/index.php [L]
</IfModule>

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Tim

The site was on magento and when we moved away from magento we kept the htaccess file intact for the most part.

Comment out lines 144 and 145 and see if that resolves the issue:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} \.php/$
RewriteRule ^(.+)/$ http://%{HTTP_HOST}/$1 [R=301,L]

That didn't do it. I deleted everything in the htaccess file and that didn't resolve either. I went to mydomain.com/crap/ to see if that would appear in the error log and it did.

My gut is telling me this isn't an htaccess issue but a reference somewhere in the blog setup. There has to be a file that is referencing that path... or so I think.

Possible.

Did you migrate the WordPress stuff from a testing domain?

Yes I did. The testing server is a clone of the live site. All managed through an SVN repo.

The problem is that I can't recreate this error on either the testing or live server unless I go directly to the invalid path. I've clicked on every link, image and form submit in hopes of triggering the error. It's really annoying at this point.

I'm using the grido theme, perhaps it's an error in there...

I would do a search on both the theme and all active plugin files looking for the a hardcoded path.
