404 Error on EVERY page? (9 posts)

    When I go create a page, publish, it's all fine.
    I will go to the site and click on a additional page, and it will give me a 404 Error message that says the page doesn't exist. WTF?
    This is annoying. Reading through, it seems to happen a lot here.

    What's the deal? Thanks.

    Hi,

    Set your desired permalink from wordpress admin area -> settings -> permalinks and then add this code in htaccess:

    `# BEGIN WordPress

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    ErrorDocument 404 /index.php?error=404
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress`

    Thanks,

    Shane G.

    Do I need to change the permissions to write this?
    If so, .htaccess was not there.

    Yes. Once your htaccess file is writable, set your permalink structure back up again and WP add the correct ReWrite rules to your .htaccess file.

    Like I said, the .htaccess file was not there.
    What would it be in? I might have missed it.

    Once I found the .htaccess file, it seems like it's not an actual file, but a folder. What file inside .htaccess do I need to change?

    It's not a folder. It's a text file.
