I am running wordpress for the first time. Very impressed actually with it. I am just a self taught hacker of code but think I can create something great with this kit. The hacks and mods sections here open up my eyes to many possibilities. Wish I had found it sooner :)
My existing host has me on a Zeuss redhat server.
ie I can pay for new hosting or try and work it on this one ( cheaper and obviously preferred option)
Wordpress is fine on it ..bar the permalinks.
I asked them if their zuess server had a mod rewrite equivalent.
This is what they told me;
"The Zeus web server (running on our Redhat servers) supports similar mod_rewrite rules to the Apache rules described in your link.
You'd simply need to send the Apache rules to us, and we'd run them through a converter tool on the web server."
Ok Sounds fine. All I need are the Apache rules. By this I presume the .htaccess file rules used by permalinks.
My problem however is that running on my zuess server wordpress does not appear to write the rules to .htaccess.
(it is ediable under the file section, but no changes occur updating permalinks)
I was wondering if some one here could help by providing the outputed rules for the following wordpress permalink input.
I hope that is ok. No index.php at the start should give my http://www.site.com/category ..etc correct?
All help and advice appreciated.
