    I have just changed my standard permalinks (http://www.XXX.com/wordpress/?p=123 ) to nice permalinks (http://www.XXX.com/wordpress/2008/08/sample-post/)
    and everytime I click on a post I get 404 page !
    switching back to old prefs brings everything back to normal !!
    Any ideas how to correct this ?
    Does it mean database is not updated ??
    Does it mean when you start with 1 type of permalinks you should stick to it and never change it or you will lose all posts previous to this modification ???
    Thanks for help.

    Are you on a windows or linux server?

    I am just running this test site on a mac at home
    It will later be transfered to a Linux server

    I'd probably worry about it if it doesn't work once moving it to a real world server environment.

    Common Problem. I think it has something to do with the .htacces file...

    You need to Chmod it to 755 or 666 then update the permalinks. I have not had sucessyet so if you do please post back your reply
