Support » Fixing WordPress » Category based permalinks

  • I’m trying to use this format for my permalinks:

    /%category%/%postname%/

    But whenever I try to access a category or a post with this enabled WordPress gives me a 404.

    I’m using Apache 2, MySQL 5 and PHP 5.1.2.

    I’ve found a couple of posts regarding 404s when using %category% in permalinks, but they are all for WordPress 1.5 and Apache 1.3, and besides that, none of the solutions shown have worked.

  • Check in your httpd.conf if there’s a line similar to
    Options Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks SymLinksifOwnerMatch. I had none, added it restarted the server and voila! permalinks galore! Hope this helps!
