[resolved] permalink issue: not fixable... (38 posts)

    I changed my permalink settings and got a err500... i had to reset my blog but i cant reach articles and static pages anymore. I would fix this through resetting permalinks but every time i go on permalinks through my dashboard, a err500 occurs if i leave the page. after that err500 the wp folder disappears out of my webspace and i can only reach it through the uploader... i think i would need a way to fix the right file manual. can any one help me? what to do?

    What happens if you temporarily rename your .htaccess?

    What does "reset my blog" mean?

    Did you set the wrong URI values in Options -> General? You can reset those with this tutorial: http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/site-url/

    Remember, the addresses must be real and not end with file names...

    i never saw my .htaccess... reset means that i deleted the whole wp folder and uploaded it again... i really only want the normal permalinks back! T_T

    Where is the blog?

    Remember that .htaccess is "hidden". If looking for it via an ftp client, be sure to toggle on your ftp client's "Show hidden files" mode.

    the blog is at fnicrew.fn.funpic.de/wordpress

    the URI values are right! i think i will have to delete the .htacces but i cant find a setting to change in my uploader wich makes this file visible...

    Are you able to GET to Options -> Permalinks?

    If so, are you able to set Permalinks to "Default"?

    Well... I'm stumped! Is this free hosting kinda deal? I notice ads flying all over the place. Do you have access to apache error logs? Maybe something useful to see in there.

    Otherwise I guess we can hope someone brighter than I wanders by...

    Oh - one last thing to try. If you can get to your Plugins page, disable all of them and see if this still happens. If you can't disable them, just use your FTP tool to move 'em out of /wp-content/plugins temporarily.

    cant u post the default .htaccess? so i could copy it right!

  16. Chris_K

    That looks like a default WP .htaccess file.

    What happened when you tried temporarily renaming it?

    its the same like before: if the .htaccess is deleted or renamed the blog is reachable but the entrys arent. if the .htaccess is there i get a err500 wich says i should edit or delete my .htaccess

    I think the problem MUST be the .htaccess or another file because the permalink(no2) is enabled and the generated .htaccess is everytime the same one! On wich file are the changes saved?

    1. If you remove the .htaccess file - the permalinks MUST be set to default configuration!
    2. All the .htaccess files are the same since v.2.x
    3. The settings are handled internally by WP. Though "nice" permalionks still need the file!

    that means i have to edit another file? ehat about options_permalinks.php? i really have to fix that problem!

    I didn't say anything about editing any file.
    You set yopur permalinks in your admin panel - have you never been there??? Options > Permalinks...

    Could I trouble you for a screen shot of that? I'd like to see how that message is displayed.

    Just a shot in the dark...
    (and sorry for not remembering the 500)

    When you say "reset" = new upload and install, do you upload the same old package or a new (fresh) download?

    u would not be able to read it anyways its on german. but i can tell u that its not from wordpress. its from the server wich is a free webspace thing. but it cant be in the server cause it worked the whole time before i once changed the permalink settings!

    its like 500 - server error check your htaccess or delete it.

    German is my 2nd language.
    [edit: I should add that your english is better than my german. Unless you're my grandma... she understands me just fine :-P )

    Did the .htaccess file exist before this all started? What happens if you edit the file, remove just the WP stuff and resave it -- then go back and try to set Options -> Permalinks to default again.

    1. Never assume people cannot read in more than one language :)

    EDIT. HS is better by 24 sec
