When I turn permalinks on, clicking on a post title returns a 404 Page Not Found error.
I've read "Using Permalinks" on the codex and reviewed similar posts here in the forums, but I still can't get them going. I must be missing something... Here's what I've tried:
1) CHMODed the .htaccess file to 666
2) Changed SERVER_SOFTWARE variable in vars.php as instructed in the codex
3) Contacted my host about the AllowOverride function and didn't get much help. I think this is probably where the issues resides.
I can't find an httpd.config file on my server, but my host insists I can change the AllowOverride function in .htaccess. Their support provided me with the following links, but not being one for coding, it's all greek to me:
Can anyone tell me what needs to be done to the .htacess file to AllowOverride? Or is my host mistaken, and do I really need to modify the httpd.config file (my suspicion)?
