Support » Fixing WordPress » .htaccess block blog access?!

  • I put this in my .htaccess file:
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /blog/
    RewriteRule ^archives/([0-9]{4})?/?([0-9]{1,2})?/?([0-9]{1,2})?/?([0-9a-z-]+)?/?([0-9]+)?/?$ /blog/index.php?year=$1&monthnum=$2&day=$3&name=$4&page=$5 [QSA]
    RewriteRule ^archives/category/?(.*) /blog/index.php?category_name=$1 [QSA]

    (I want to use /archives/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/ as permalink structure.)
    When I set this htaccess file, I can’t access my blog anymore!!! Should there be any other lines in this file before these tags?

    What do you exactly want your htaccess file to do ?

    Make sure that 1)your base WordPress directory is ‘blog’ (as indicated in your .htaccess at Rewrite Base /blog/, and 2) that the .htaccess is located in that directory.

    I had the exact same problem, but with hand-coded HTML.
    The solution was to switch from Unicode encoded files to something else…

    What do you mean, when you say ‘I can’t access my blog anymore’? Are you getting a 403 Forbidden. If that is the case, then perhaps you could add this line to your .htacces file:
    Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
    That worked for me.
