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 http://www.jillgrovemezzo.com/wordpress

    I have a custom permalink set to: http://www.jillgrovemezzo.com/wordpress/%year/%postname%/

    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]
    </IfModule>
    
    # END WordPress

    I have read the documentation on wordpress.org 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.

    PLEASE HELP!

  • 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.
