    Hello itweb99,

    I am sorry to hear you are having these problems. Can you show me what your .htaccess file has in it? When using Apache as a web server, the permalinks rely on the contents of this file to achieve the dynamic folder structure in the URL.

    Most likely, the basic .htaccess is what you need, and you can retrieve that here:

    You may want to also speak with your host as well, as you could have a file permissions issue that is not allowing WordPress to write to this file.


    @sterndata, @harryjackson1221 Thank you so much for your prompt response.
    The .htaccess file was empty.
    now it works.
