    What permission should I use for this file? No matter what permission i give it wordpress still says it is not rewritable in the Permalinks section.

    first check that it is in the root file, then give it 666, after you change permalinks give it 644

    I have made the .htaccess file 644 and put the permalinks cod in. WordPress still saying that .htaccess file is not writable.

    You didn't read the reply very well. 4k said make .htaccess permissions of 666 then change the the permalinks options in your wp dashboard then after you've changed and tested your permalinks change the .htaccess back to 644 so it can't be written by anyone else.

    Sorry I did not read that properly.

    I have made the permission 666 and wordpress still says .htaccess file is not writable. Links to actual post work, however links to categories do not work.
