Pages Only Display with Default Permalink (4 posts)

    I am running WordPress on a Linode server (LAMP) and have successfully installed WordPress. I created the .htaccess file in the root location and permalinks update successfully, however I am unable to view my site pages. I get the "Not Found. The requested URL /'page_name'/ was not found on this server." message.

    Anyone else run into this problem and hopefully have a solution.

    Much obliged for any help.

    Try to chmod your files. On my Deb LAMP server in terminal I use this command. (r is for recursive)

    chmod 777 -r /var/www/wp

    Not sure what format your OS uses. Once you chmod and test your pages be sure to change the config.php to something other than 777. I just wrote it because it is a quick way to test permissions.

    Some times if some WP files do not have the correct permission updating the permalink format does not work. I've always found it's best to set the format right after install.

    I tried this but still no luck. The pages and posts appear in the dashboard and in the menu structure but when I go to view them I get the Not Found error.

    Did the file permissions actually change?
