I am trying to fix my permalinks. The wordpress console tells me that I need to update my .htaccess file because I don't have one. However, I put a .htaccess.txt file in the root of the word press directory and changed the permissions so it's writable and things still aren't working. I updated the file but the links still aren't working.
Actually, they did work, but they pointed to the old site pages and not the new ones that I created in the word press console. I moved the old site files to a folder called old and tried to recreate the pages, it told me to update my htaccess file which I did and I'm still getting the 404 errors.
