[resolved] Error 404 after htaccess - 301 redirect (3 posts)

    I uploaded a .htaccess file to my WordPress root folder, with the following code.

    ========================================================
    Options +FollowSymlinks
    RewriteEngine on
    rewritecond %{http_host} ^domain.com [nc]
    rewriterule ^(.*)$ http://www.domain.com/$1 [r=301,nc]
    ========================================================
    My intent was to do canonical redirection, that is: redirect visitors from http://site.com to http://www.site.com

    Once I had the .htaccess file in place, except my homepage rest of the pages return a 404 error.

    Any help regarding this would be appreciated.

    I would guess that you've over-written the code in the original .htaccess file that WordPress uses to make it's permalinks.

    Go to your Control Panel > Settings > Permalinks and check your settings are correct. Then make sure you 'Save Changes' and it should update your .htaccess with the permalink code.
