  • I can’t get the permalinks to work. I have upgraded to the latest version 2.6.1 and tried different themes, nothing works; either a 404 error is displayed, or the main page is permanently displayed. Thanks.

  • Here’s more info: Using “Pretty” permalinks

    If your server uses IIS, then check out: Permalinks without mod_rewrite

    You do have an .htaccess file in your WP root, correct? CHMOD it to 666, THEN turn on permalinks, and THEN after WP updates the permalink structure, CHMOD it back to 644.

    Where do I find the CHMOD setting? If it should be in the .htaccess file, something went wrong. The file is the following with permalinks enabled:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    # END WordPress


    Okay, I found the CHMOD function, but FTP is not allowing me to change this? How can I do this?
