Support » Fixing WordPress » Permalink issues

  • I have integrated a wordpress blog into an existing website. Everything seems to be working fine EXCEPT whenever I click on a post link in the main post page, I get an error that the file is not found. “Not Found. Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn’t here.”

    The website is

    I have a custom permalink set to:

    I have checked the .htaccess file and it reads as follows:

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

    I have read the documentation on about Permalinks and the fixes there do not seem to address the issue. Please do not refer me to that documentation.

    As some posts suggested, I changed the .htaccess permission to something other than 664 (I changed it to 775 because 666 was not a choice on my server), then refreshed the permalinks. It didn’t work.

    I’ve seen some posts mention an httpd.config file but I don’t seem to have one of those so I can’t do the AllowOverride all fix that I’ve seen in some posts.

    My issue seems to be a common one but none of the fixes that I have found on this forum or the web have worked for me.

  • Place your .htaccess file in root of host env and use folder specific options…discuss with host…

    Thanks for your reply. So to clarify, you suggest that I move the .htaccess to the root folder (it is currently in …/wordpress/ folder). And then when you say, “use folder specific options”, do you mean that I need to direct something from my index.php or something else?

    Forgive me for being a newbie at this. This is my first stab at php and I am learning as I go.
