Support » Fixing WordPress » default permalink works only!

  • I tried everything uploaded my own .htacess file . made sure i chmoded it. nothing. dont plugins need to find .htacess file too. i have no problem installing them. there is clearly no supportive thread for this. everything is closed with some so called humbug remedy. what is the concrete solution for this. also my wordpress is installed in a sub-directory. all these articles and videos show the purpose of the permalink feature but none with trouble shooting the 404 error. anybody out there really know what they are doing and could help me. how could something this small but yet so important when kickstarting your blog be not addressed. what do i need to do to click save changes and be happy. straight to the point. how can wordpress go back to default and work but not have access to my .htaccess file to wrtite to.

  • The .htaccess file is a crucial part of Apache serving your site (it’s read before interpreting any PHP code), would you mind posting your .htaccess rules in order to being able to spot a bug if there is one in it?

    Is there any plugin you know requiring access to .htaccess? It would be very bad practice, indeed.

    i deactivated all of my pluins just like the gazillion other people have also on the webhost they said ad this to the top of the .htaccess file
    rewritebase /
    ok now underneath that i copy and pasted the code that that wordpress give me when it attempts to write to it.
    `<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /communication/expansion/
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /communication/expansion/index.php [L]
    nothing happens. if wordpress knows that everyone is going to do this why does the default suck so much. and why isnt there any in depth tutorial on this.

    ok right after i posted this i got it to work. Now for anyone having problems this is what i did.
    make your .htaccess file for me i didnt have one
    i created one within my file manager if you upload it through ftp leave it as a text file till your done. then remove the .txt from file name
    also my wordpress is in a subdirectory
    for instance my blog my blog is
    i had to put rewritebase /communication/expansion
    underneath that i put the code wordpress gave me to post
    make sure its in the directory no where else
    for those that was frustrated like me relax. i had long beautiful dread locks. now they are all laying on the computer desk non attached! LOL
