I would assume it's my lack of knowledge of Apache at the moment, but help out a n00b will ya?
So, WP is installed on my computer that is sitting right next to my left leg. I'm attempting to set up permalinks, but everytime I put the rules in, I get a 403 Forbidden Error.
I've attempted to do it in an .htaccess file and in the <Directory></Directory> tags in my apache conf.
My permalink string is set as: /archives/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/
No matter where I put it, I lock myself out and get a 403.
