Permalinks not working within a subdomain (6 posts)

    I recently upgraded to 2.o and my permalinks do not work anymore. I am running WP on a subdomain http://blog.xxxxx.com through GoDaddy. No matter what I do to the permalinks settings when I click on a link on the blog it just refreshes the page. If I set permalinks to "Default" everything works fine. I am also able to get permalinks working if I change the blog and WP addresses to http://xxxxx.com/blog (which follows the true directory structure).

    Since I had permalinks working in 1.5, I think there must be a way to get them working in 2 while still referencing the subdomain. The only change I had to make in 1.5 was to go into vars.php and set $is_apache=1;.

    Can anyone assist with this?

    I am hosting with Yahoo and since they just started the whole WordPress quick install they have provided a plugin called "Customizable Permalinks." I don't know if it will work outside of yahoo though.

    Thanks meetjustin. I couldn't find that plugin publicly so I assume that it is for Yahoo/SBC only.

    Can anyone else offer any suggestions on this? It seems weird that the admin page insists on updating the .htaccess file, even though no matter what your structure is it puts the same data into the file. Should there be more than just:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress

    Anyone else working with a GoDaddy account?

    I had this same problem -recently- >.> I have a godaddy account too

    My old .htaccess

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress

    Only thing I modified was this line

    RewriteBase /blog

    my blog url was in the form: http://blog.domain.com

    Just an FYI on GoDaddy and permalinks - for some reason, when working with wordpress on a subdomain, you need to wait 10-15 minutes for everything to update. (Could be more or less, of course.)

    I've run into this a few times, and patience is the only thing that works. I'm a huge fan of GoDaddy, and the majority of problems you find people posting about here are simply because they're unfamiliar... I've been using them for 10 years now and love them. You just need to learn their quirks is all. Don't give up!
