I'm new to WordPress and just installed it last night. The hosting service seems to have all the basic requirements met, and said that mod_rewrite was enabled. Installation succeeded and I can create users and post.
I installed WordPress into a directory called "wp" immediately below my "public_html" directory.
But I don't have an "archives" directory under my "wp" directory, and if I use < !--more-- > in a post, or if I click on the archives calendar thingie when viewing the blog, I get 404'd.
I have edited .htaccess to change RewriteBase (changed "/wp" to "/public_html/wp/") but this does not solve the problem.
Any help would be welcome. I'm not php-savvy at all.
