Issues with RSS feed from my site


Here is the output from feedburner:

The URL you entered does not appear to be a valid feed. We encountered the following problem: Error on line -1: Premature end of file.
Identify Feed Source
The feed URL you entered is: http://www.pharmit.us/cms/backend/pharmit_news.rss2
We could not find a valid feed at that address. Here are some possible reasons for why this might have happened:

Is the feed valid? Confirm its validity now:
Validate this feed...
You can also view this post on why feed validity matters from FeedBurner Forums.
If the feed is valid and FeedBurner still can't handle it, let us know.
Are you using the URL of the web page or the URL of the feed?
FeedBurner is usually able to "auto-discover" your feed from a web page, but in this case we didn't find any related feeds. You may want to enter the URL of the feed directly.
Is the URL is misspelled or a copy+paste action didn't work?
If that's the case, please try again

So here is what I was trying to do. I got the rss2.0 writer class, and have it installed no problem. I created an rss2 feed called pharmit_news.rss2. No problem.

I edited the php file to configure it to create this file name as well.

So when I go to feedburner, I get the above.

When I use Safari and click RSS, I get an error as well. NOTE: I was getting this with the default geeklog.rdf file also.

I have checked permissions...777 on the backend folder and 755 on the .rss2 and .rdf files.

What am I doing wrong?




When I look at the *.rss2 or geeklog.rdf files, they are blank documents.

What gives?


And when I use the blog plugin and try to go to the url to write my blog (http:/pharmit.us/cms/blog),

I get this error :

faultCode 103 faultString XML error: no element found at line 1

Make sure the feed file is writable.

bye, Dirk


777 on the file and folder backend. Still all same errors.


Got it. It was the # of characters. I had it set to 100, it did not like it. Changed to 50, works fine. Can I edit the class *.php file to make this longer?
