I've just upgraded to WP 2.0.1, and I'm trying to change my permalinks (archives and tags). Unfortunately, when I do, WP doesn't seem to change the contents of my .htaccess file.
My apache does have mod_rewrite running. I can hand-edit .htaccess via WordPress's file editor web page, meaning that the permissions are set correctly. When I try to change the permalink structure, the links in my WP site pages change, but the .htaccess rules aren't there, so anyone clicking on any permalink gets a 404 Not Found error.
Do any of you WP wizards have an idea why WP might be failing to change .htaccess for permalinks? And what code can I hand-insert to get the same effect?
