    i have a php/mysql testing server running on my powermac (unix) and an identical server running on my macbook (intel). identical php5 installs. identical mysql4 installs. identical apache 1.3.33 installs. identical wordpress installs. identical .htaccess and httpd.conf files with same permissions. using custom permalinks works on my powermac, but not on my macbook.

    any suggestions?

    Do you have mod_rewrite enabled on the macbook?

    can you verify that the htaccess files on the macbook fail to operate (or succeed), doing a test of some sort?

    Try uploading this little file for your mac (link in thread):
