Support » Fixing WordPress » creating a new .htaccess file
11 years ago
could some tell me how to have wordpress generate a new .htaccess file?
press space once
save the file as ‘htaccess.txt’
upload that to the blog’s main directory
rename it to .htaccess
change it’s permissions to 666 is needed.
Than change the permalinks.
whoa..that’s a bit over my head. I under stand the first part, but how would i change it’s permissions and then the permalinks?
thanks for getting back so quick.
Permissions can usually be done with your webhost file manager or your ftp client.
The permalinks are done from within WP.
