Support » Fixing WordPress » Deleted my .HTACCESS file now my permalinks don’t work

  • I’m using Deans Permalink migration.

    My site somehow received an internal server error. I called my hosting provider and they claimed it was due to an .htaccess file.

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    Options +FollowSymLinks
    RewriteRule submissions.html$ /submissions.php
    RewriteRule upload.html$ /upload.phpRewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^*$      [NC]

    Is the .htaccess file which was giving the error but it was working fine earlier.

    So now if you click on a topic at , it will not display anything. Any idea how to fix this? Thanks

  • Anyone?

    I can tell you what worked for me, as I just had to migrate from old Textdrive servers to new Joyent servers, and I hope it works for you!

    I had the same issue: front page perfect, but clicking on anything resulted on a 404.

    I didn’t even touch the htaccess file. Someone suggested to me it might be that file, or the permalink set up. In your admin panel, go to the tab “permalinks” and simply “update” the format of your perma links. I think this essentially “reassociates” all your links with the text on your pages from your database.

    I “updated” to the exact same format I was using. That is, I didn’t change anything, I just hit the update button, then it all worked.

    Good luck! I hope that works for you!

    Worked like a charm. Thank you, Sarah.

    I’ll try this too. I haven’t even been able to find my .htaccess file.

    I’m just trying to have my blog at my root address instead of /wordpress/
