  • Resolved Tunghsiao Liu


    I have a Apache server, however, I have to show the ‘index.php’ when I use permalinks:( I think it’s uly.

    Is there any way to remove the ‘index.php’ from permalinks?

  • If you MUST include index.php in order to get permalinks working then you don’t have permalinks working correctly.

    The answer then is, “yes” you can have permalinks without index.php

    thanks for replying.

    but i just read the notice in my admin:

    For the above to work you must have something called mod_rewrite installed on your server. (Ask your host.) If that isn’t available, you can prefix the structure with /index.php/ . This is the recommend method if you are on any web server but Apache.


    Are you asking how to get mod_rewrite installed ?

    No, i’ve installed correctly, and i can only view my post in such form: http://example/index.php/archives/abc/

    I want to use http://example/archives/abc/ but it is unavailable.

    What do you mean by, “unavailable” ?

    If you’ve configured mod_rewrite correctly and have .htaccess set to the right permissions, then you don’t need index.php in order for your permalinks to work.

    If index.php must be in there in order for your urls to resolve correctly then you don’t have permalinks configured completeley.

    I had that same problem of haveing index.php in front of all my permalinks… I found that when I created an .htaccess file (a brand new one… dont delete your other one) and placed it in the root directory for my wordpress install and enabled permalinks, it worked…
    so… for me my wordpress install is in so when I created my .htaccess file, I placed it in “public_html/wp” (not in the directory where your theme is).

    Hope that helps

    I am using .html extension as my post permalinks.
    For the new version of WordPress 1.5.2 there is no .htaccess rewrite rule generator.

    During some trying and error then I found out some solution. Try this URL:

    Ok! I know my apache is not configured completeley.

    i changed Options FollowSymLinks in my Apache httpd.config is just ok.
