Support » Localhost Installs » Cant update permalinks!

  • Hi friend,
    I run wordpress 3.3.1,I’m using mantra theme by cryout creations.Now i come to my problem.
    I cant update my permalinks. When i select default it works perfectly.But whenever i change it into other options it doesn’t works even it updates the .htaccess file.
    Whenever i try to access my post with newly updated permalinks it gives me “Nothing Found The requested URL /2012/04/this-is-a-test/ was not found on this server.” Acutally its a 404 error.
    First i manually changed my .htaccess file as per the wordpress code.It didnt work.Then i changed it into “chmod 666 .htaccess” so that the wordpress can save by itself.It did,but no use at all.
    I can only use the default option.But not any other.Please help me with this.I suppose that the problem is with my MySQL database.
    This is the code in my .htaccess file:
    `# BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    # END WordPress`

    Please visit my site so that you can figure out the problem. [my site may be shutdown when you open it,the reason is we face load shedding problems]
    Thank you.

  • Is mod_rewite available?

    You’re either on a free host that doesn’t support mod_rewrite, or on a windows server that doesn’t have the rewrite module installed, or LAMP without mod_rewrite.

    Either way, your site is down.

    we face load shedding problems….

    Sounds like a bad host.

    Hi i use my own server thats why its down for hours.
    Its just a testing environment.
    I use LAMP server.

    How to check whether i have mod_rewrite or not?

    anyways whenever i change the permalink option, wordpress says permalinks updated successfully.But actually it changes the .htaccess content only.But not the real permalinks.
    Please help me with this.

    It’s a server problem, not WP. Google “enable mod_rewrite”
