[resolved] Permalinks won't be pretty. (4 posts)

    Ok, so I've seen other people have had the same problem, but what I was wondering was whether the fact that my homepage is http://cyrozap.blogdns.com/ and not http://cyrozap.blogdns.com/wordpress/ made a difference. Also, I wasn't able to automatically update my blog, I had to do it manually. I have tried modding the .htaccess file, deleting it, etc. I think, however, It might be a problem with mod_rewrite. I have it loaded at startup (I put the line in my otherwise empty httpd.conf). I am running apache2.2 and WordPress 2.8.4 on Ubuntu Server 9.04.

  2. Your homepage location doesn't matter.

    What's in your .htaccess?
    Have you verified mod_rewrite is working? (here's a fun way to find out...)

    Sorry I'm replying late.

    My .htaccess does get modified to the thing to make it rewrite.

    Oh, snap!

    I just did that little tutorial you showed me and did two things with .htaccess after I completed it.

    1. Created a symlink from /var/www/.htaccess it to /etc/wordpress/htaccess
    2. Modified it to what WP told me to modify it to.
    3. Restarted Apache

    Considering that #1 and #3 were what I did that were different (before #2 was done by WP automatically and I checked the file every time it did), I think that's what made it all better. Thank you for all your help!
