permalink customization strangeness - 100% CPU usage with anything but default (4 posts)

    Hi Folks,

    I've been running Arsgeek.com on WP for a while now. I'm trying to get the wp-supercache plugin to work with my blog as I'm getting lots of traffic and this seems to be the way to go.

    EDIT: Forgot to say I'm on WP 2.5.1.

    In doing this, I noted that the plugin likes pretty permalinks - so I try to change my permalinks to this structure:


    And when I do - my cpu usage goes from about 7% to 99.9% and stays there.

    If I put it back to default (where a post looks like this: http://www.arsgeek.com/?p=1234567) it drops right back down to normal.

    Any ideas?

    Anyone have any ideas? Even when my site is under very low load, the CPU usage jumps to 100% within seconds of me changing my permalink structure.

    Aha! Figured it out.

    Permissions were wonky on my .htaccess file. Once I set them correctly and WP could re-write as needed, stuff worked normally.
