I have moved my friends website to new hosting, and sice the move the permalinks don't work. I've changed the access to .htaccess to 666 and gone to permalinks in settings (which was set as custom /%postname%/) I've tried changing to to different permalink settings but none work. All get a 404 error.
I've changed back to /%postname%/, as that's what I'd like to keep it as - but I'm not sure how to get them working!!
Whenever I view the .htaccess file to see what wordpress changed (after changing a setting in Settings>Permalinks) all there is the file is:
# BEGIN WordPress
# END WordPress
not any rewrite rules
Can anyone help???
