I just completely reinstalled wordpress to the latest version.
The reason I did this is because of memory problems and no access to permalinks. I tried everything out there and nothing helped. So I decided to reinstall, in the process losing a lot of data because back up was not working either.
Now I reinstalled WordPress 3.0 and still have no access to permalinks. I am now doing it again. No active plugins, no nothing, just a fresh install. I even sent the entire directory to 777 permissions to make sure it was all open and still nothing.
After I went the 777 route I could only access the empty blog at the TLD but not the admin page, anything other than TLD caused a 500 error.
Can someone please try to help me out with this?
