[closed] After upgrade to WP 3.5 permalink structure not working (10 posts)

    Prior to the upgrade, my permalinks setting was "Day and name"

    Once I upgraded, my blog homepage became inaccessible. It re-directs you to my website homepage.

    Blog: 2spencers.com/veterans-disability-blog/
    Website: 2spencers.com
    Sample blog post: http://2spencers.com/veterans-disability-blog/2012/06/18/lawyer-long-va-respond-appeal/

    If I leave the permalink setting to "Day and name" my blog home page is inaccessible.

    Changing the permalink setting to "Default" stops the blog home page from re-directing.

    But if I change the permalink setting to anything other than "Day and name," all of the existing links to my blog posts return 404 errors.

    So, for now my choice appears to be either having my home page or all of my blog posts inaccessible.

    Additional information:

      I have not changed themes. I am running Thesis 1.8.5
      I have tried setting a static page, but that doesn't resolve the issue.
      Right now, I have left it set to "Day and name" so that the majority of my blog can be read.

    Short of creating an entire new blog from scratch, I am at a total loss as to what to do here.

    Yes, that is correct. I have left the permalinks set as "Day and name" so that the posts are accessible. I included that link so you could see what my blog looks like versus the website.

    Please try going to the blog's home page -- 2spencers.com/veterans-disability-blog You will see that it redirects to my website's homepage.

    What is in your WordPress root .htaccess file?

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /veterans-disability-blog/
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /veterans-disability-blog/index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress

    That looks fine. Have you checked with your hosts that mod_rewrite is correctly configured & running on your server?

    I will do that and let you know what I find out.

    HostGator says that mod_rewrite is correctly configured & running on the server.

    I'm a complete newbie to WP and was having a bear of a time with this Permalink stuff. My WP install isn't able to modify .htaccess so I created it manually and Permalinks still weren't working. Luckily I have shell access and can to modify httpd.conf directly. It works... for now...

    <VirtualHost *:80>
        ...
        <Directory /path/to/domain/subdir>
            RewriteEngine On
            RewriteBase /subdir/
            RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
            RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
            RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
            RewriteRule . /subdir/index.php [L]
        </Directory>
    </VirtualHost>

    Hope this helps someone...
