    Ok, I installed wordpress on our webserver and everything went pretty well, as in exactly like all the other times I have installed wordpress. I went did some small customizations in the admin area (changed admin password and theme only) and everything worked. I clicked on the view site button and the page looked exactly as I had wanted it to. but when you click on any link it just reloads the homepage, reagrdless of permalink settings or theme.

    So at first I thought it might be some obvious setting in the php.ini but after doing my best to mimmick the live environment locally I still had gained no ground.

    here is the test.php and here is the site http://mmcmedia.org/development/. Any input in this error would be greatly appreciated.

    See the troubleshooting sections on the Permalinks page. After a quick glance at your test page, I'd wager your host isn't running mod_rewrite.

    But I shouldn't need mod_rewrite to use http://mmcmedia.org/?p=2 should I? The permalinks page has information on making permalinks work on a windows server, but that doesn't help because even the default basic links don't work.

    Hmm, good point.
    One would think http://mmcmedia.org/development/?p=17 should work.

    And it doesn't.

    But ... http://mmcmedia.org/development/index.php?p=17 does work.

    Which would imply that you might want to take the Custom permalinks route and embed index.php into the custom structure.

    Ah, like here in that article: http://codex.wordpress.org/Permalinks#Using_Permalinks_Without_mod_rewrite
