This is definintly not a new issues based on my searches but I think I have a unique caveat that is keeping me from getting this fixed.
I am running WordPress on a Windows 2003 server but am using Apache 2.2.17
instead of their IIS product.
My Permalink settings are forced to look like this: /index.php/%post_id%/%postname%/
if I remove the /index.php I get a 404 when trying to goto a post or page.
I tried the solution here to no avail. I endabled mod_rewrite as well as updated a .htaccess per the instructions.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
