[resolved] Weird permalink problem (6 posts)

    I've got this weird problem when I try to use permalinks on my blog, everything works just as expected, except when I try to go back a page or two then I get a very unexpected 404 error. From the front page I can go one page back before hitting the 404, while on the category page I get the 404 when I click the "previous posts" link the first time.

    Switching to another theme doesn't help, but if I turn off permalinks it works perfectly fine. Anyone out there that can help me?

    Who's your host. I ask because mine doesn't allow .htaccess files which means no pretty permalinks.

    I use Dreamhost.

    OK, I'm not on Dreamhost, and I'm sure you already looked here , but this is where I found a solution for the same problem.

    I've checked there and everywhere else, but nothing works. :(

    After much poking and prodding I solved it, somehow. Somewhere between poking .htaccess for the umpteenth time and working on my own theme it started working.
