(I have searched the forums and have attempted all similar issue solutions, with no success. This seems like an undocumented issue. If it is please comment with the link.)
I’ve locked my self out in a big way.
I have am running on Apache, with mod_rewrite on, my root permissions (i believe) set to allow wordpress to write to it, and i have an .htaccess document which contains the recommended text. I am using SVN for server access, but i don’t think that it is a factor.
I can access the ‘admin’ page and can click to the internal links, but i get nothing below the update nag on the Permalinks page.
I was experimenting with pretty-links for SEO purposes, and when i saved something custom like /%category%/%page_name%/ things went blank, and i was unable to navigate ‘back’ to change it to defaults. Is there some way to reset permalinks to default out side of the admin page?
Any help is appreciated. A re-install seems out of the question.
