Permalinks Not Working (4 posts)

    I have a site trying to use permalinks - and the permalinks are not working.

    I'm just using one of the preset options (date and name based). Any link that is clicked looks like its showing just the home page. The URL is displayed correctly - with the rewrite - but the content is always the home page. This occurs for pages and blog posts.

    The server is running Apache/1.3.34; PHP 5.2.0; mySQL 3.23.55; FreeBSD 4.10

    I am not 100% sure that AllowOverride is set to All - is there an easy way to test without access to Apache config file?

    Thanks in advance.

    That's a great question. I wish I knew the answer to it.
    Hopefully someone will have an idea.

    Meantime, have you confirmed that your .htaccess is getting updated/created when you change Permalinks?

    Well the host has documentation on how to set up permalinks in WordPress so I assume (is that safe ;) that everything is in place to do this.

    The .htaccess file is being updates, yes.

    This host has the ability to allow me to switch back and forth between PHP 4.?.? and PHP 5.2. I needed PHP 5 for some plugins but was on PHP 4 originally I permalinks were working I think. I amin the process of reverting back to PHP 4 to test this. But they state WP 2 has problems with permalinks on PHP 5.

    However, I have PHP 5.1.3 on another server and its using permalinks fine. So this is conflicting.

    I upgraded the WP on this server to match that of the one I'm using on other servers, so its at 2.1.3 now. I was hoping this would help but it didn't.

    So my question now is do permalinks work with PHP 5.2 to anyone's knowledge?

    Thx for the reply!

    Well I reverted back to PHP 4 and the permalinks still didn't work.

    So as it is now I am running PHP 5.2 with WordPress 2.2.2 and Apache 1.3.4.

    The host support docs give instructions on how to activate permalinks - which just gives normal instruction via WP admin/options so I get the impression that .htacces is fine ( I see it updating) and mod_rewrite is enables and AllowOverride is set to All.

    I was suprised I could switch back and forth between PHP version. So at this point the only item in the above list I haven't been able to tweek is Apache.

    If anyone has an idea for me to try I'd love to hear it.

    Thx again!
