Support » Fixing WordPress » permalink 500 error

  • Whenever I tried to create permalinks with the .htaccess, I kept getting Internal Server Errors. Then I found this site, where it mentioned that ftp gave the correct CRLF line terminators but other transfer methods did not.
    But I have to use sftp or uploads, as my server always times out my slow ftp connection. So I opened Mozilla, copy/pasted my permalinks from the wordpress form in the Mozilla browser to notepad, named the file .htaccess and uploaded it. This fixed all my 500 errors, and I now have great working permalinks.
    Anyway, if you’re getting Internal Server Errors with .htaccess, it’s something to try.

  • That is a great clue! I have been pasting in the rewrite rules directly through a terminal/ssh connection. Could that cause a 500 error?

    Sho’nuff, I fixed it. Pasting the rewrite rules via the WordPress interface did the trick!
