Permalinks on local OS X Apache (6 posts)

    I am having a really hard time getting permalinks to work correctly on my WP install. I have everything installed locally on my MacBook Pro. I get 404 errors when clicking on any of the permalinks. Other that that, most things seem to be functioning fine. PHP5 & MySQL load fine, .htaccess is writable, DB Creation was successful, its just the permalinks that do not work. If I switch back to the default page structure, it's fine.

    I'm customizing the design, and I want to have direct links to pages that I can transfer easily to my hosted site, thus the need for permalink structure.

    Is there anyway to: a) get permalinks to work on a local install of Apache on OS X, or b) dynamically generate the page links using a WP library function, sort of like wp_list_pages() but for one specific page?

    I either turn permalinks to default or put /index.php/ in front of what I have eg if you have /%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/ --locally it would become /index.php/%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/

    I am having the same problem, did anyone resolve this? Seems a pain to put the index.php in front of the permalinks?

    My local dev environment is Mac OS X 10.4. I could never get permalinks to work properly and beat my head on the wall trying all the "fixes" posted on forums, etc. I knew I was following the proper instructions but it just wouldn't work.

    It wasn't until I upgraded to Apache 2.x that permalinks finally worked. Now any type permalinks I try works flawlessly. I can only assume that WordPress didn't play nice with Apache 1.3.
