Support » Fixing WordPress » Permalink 404 Problem

  • Resolved macunix


    Fresh Install
    v 2.8.4
    Import site from Export xml of v2.2.1 (1and1 Blog)
    1and1 ISP

    I get a 404 error only on one post when using anything other than Permalink:Deflaut.

    Search and found some post. This is what I’ve tried.
    1. nuked .htaccess. Is does recreate file.
    2. changing permalink setting DOES update .htaccess
    3. renamed index.php.. bad idea, site went 403
    4. Entering values into Category base & Tag base had no effect.

  • Hi,

    Set your desired permalink link for your blog and then add this code in htaccess:

    # BEGIN WordPress

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    ErrorDocument 404 /index.php?error=404
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    # END WordPress

    After that have a check with old and new posts.

    Since the 404 error wasn’t effecting all posts, I decided to focus on the problem record. I noticed under ‘quick edit’ that the “Slug” didn’t look correct. But by the time I figured that out I had re-created the post with a new record and deleted the problem post.

    Would be nice if export and import included media files with it.


    I’m on 1and1 too, did the same but it doesn’t work, I restarted the server and still having problems with permalink. Any clue?


    Solved the problem work very good. The .htaccess code above allow you to fix the permalink issue on 1and1

    Thanks a lot
