Support » Alpha/Beta/RC » Changing Permalinks in 3.7 RC2 didn't work for me

  • Resolved Tim Berneman


    I just did a virgin install of 3.7 RC2 on my local WAMP server (I actually use Server2Go) and using the default theme. When I change the Permalinks to “Post name” and save it none of the links work (like Date, Category, Comments, etc) nor does the “Sample Page” from the menu. When I change back to “Default” they work again.

    My htaccess file is writeable and in fact it does change to this when I select “Post name”.

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /wordpress37rc2/
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /wordpress37rc2/index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    EDIT: I just brought up the “Sample Page” page in the admin and clicked the “Preview Changes” button and it’s 404 as well.

    Is WP installed in a subdirectory and using it in the URL (i.e. localhost/wordpress37rc2/ ) or did you do the giving WP it’s own directory thing?

    Can you test with 3.7 RC1?

    Both “WordPress Address (URL)” and “Site Address (URL)” are “”. I think it’s something with my server though because it’s doing the same thing for WordPress 3.61, something must of changed at my end. I will investigate further and get back to you.

    What/Where is the link to 3.7 RC1?

    It’s on the downloads page. There’s a link to older releases.
