    hey,

    i am facing a very big problem...

    i am using wordpress 2.9.2 on my windows server 2008/2003 hosing with PHP 5 and MySQL 5...

    if i use the default permalink my site works.......
    but the moment i change it to something else even in the list provided my site doesn't load.....

    i guess it is some .htaccess file problem but i really dont know what it is.....

    and i need to change the permalinks......

    so what should i do to get my site loading????.....

    and please explain me in depth as much as possible cause i dont understand HTML and PHP, however i understand some code and Java......

    Please Help Fast......

    Thnx.......

    If it's an IIS server, you may want to look at this page.

    Ask your hosts. Otherwise, try following the recommendation for IIS servers.
