How to disable permalink definitively ?

  • Hello !

    I have installed wordpress on a free.fr account, and htaccess with url rewriting seems not to be accepted. But each link on my blog still is a permalink and on my admin panel, if I try to suppress permalink, I have got a 500 internal error and I must suppress the new htaccess in order to get back to site … with each link as a permalink. I tried to search in php files what is done in permalink part in order to solve that problem, but I couldn’t find.

    Thanks for your help 😉

  • Explain what you want a bit better. You’re running on with really long sentences. Do you want to get rid of the customized permalinks altogether (like you customized them before) or…?

    So you want permalinks to work but the htaccess isn’t writing? (because that whole disabling title thing is throwing me off).

    Try this:

    1 – upload empty .htaccess to blog root
    2 – chmd to 777
    3 – define new permalink structure in options
    4 – chmd back to 644 (or whatever permissions were before)

    I wanted to use permalink and an htaccess file is created BUT when the file is created then server gives back a 500 error. I have to delete htaccess then to be able to connect to my site.

    When this is done, links are still permalink and in admin console permalink are still used.

    So I suppress them and … 500 internal error …. ….. ……

    First, try what Viitoria suggested.

    If that doesn’t work, go back to Options/Permalinks, delete your .htaccess file, clear the data in the “Structure:” field, and hit “Update Permalink Structure”.

    Once some order is restored, try setting your permalinks with /index.php/ at the the front of the structure.

    ….

    If that doesn’t work, go back to Options/Permalinks
    delete your .htaccess file >> ok that’s what i explained before

    clear the data in the “Structure:” field and hit “Update Permalink Structure” >> 500 internal error

    and now ? 😉

    Did you delete the .htaccess file first? If you did, then that should have given you a working site with the default permalink structure. If you didn’t, then it would return 500 error.

    I delete my htacces, the site with working but with an incorrect permalink structure

    for example on main page, “ma-machine” is still there, it was articleid1 or something like that before

    and in admin page, still something in permalink even if htaccess was deleted

    >> and in admin page, still something in permalink even if htaccess was deleted
    Have you tried deleting what’s in the textbox before hitting “update permalink structure”?

    of course

    any idea of where is stored permalink configuration to manually delete it ?

    hello i have exactly the same problem (totally the same as you described it) on free.fr. did you find a solution to the problem? i too tried to find the stored permalink configuration but just couldn’t find it.

    any help would be great.
    thanks

    Do you mean where in the database? wp-options table

    I’m trying to get back to where I was before I tried the permalinks. apparently you can’t mod-rewrite ot chmod with free.fr, my provider.

    but i can’t find a php file where the information is stored to go back. and like guipom mentioned –

    ‘I wanted to use permalink and an htaccess file is created BUT when the file is created then server gives back a 500 error. I have to delete htaccess then to be able to connect to my site.

    i have the same problem.
    any help would be great.

    Try it in this order:
    1) Go into options and clear the text box that has the perma link structure.
    2) Click the Update button
    3) Connect by FTP and DELETE the .htaccess file there.
    Everything should be back to normal at that point. I think what might be happening is that you delete the htaccess file, but then update the permalinks and so it’s getting recreated (even though it’s blank)
