Not tears of joy, I assure you. I've been wrestling with my local Apache 1.3 installation for the last three hours trying to get clean permalinks to work. I had absolutely no knowledge prior concerning mod_rewrite, so I consulted the guide located at http://www.sitepoint.com/article/guide-url-rewriting/. I started off by uncommenting
#LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so and
#AddModule mod_rewrite.c in the
httpd.conf as instructed. Then I restarted the server. I had an
.htaccess generated when I set permalinks options (WP 1.5 installation). When I follow permalinks in my WordPress template, I get a 404 error. What's going on?
