I am in the process of setting up wordpress for someone, and I want to give them permalinks. I have these running fine, until I try creating a new page - when I do that, it tries to update the .htaccess file (chmod 777 BTW) but instead of adding to it it rewrites the whole lot again after the existing set of rules! This causes an Internal Server Error.
So in other words, if I have permalinks on - as soon as I create a page I totally disable the blog! Surely this has to be a serious bug - has anyone found a way round it?
