I have just installed WP and I'm experiencing issues with permalinks.
When I try to activate any kind of rewritten, except the default one, the htaccess file is not generated and the following warning is displayed:
You should update your .htaccess now.
Files permissions seems to be correct, anyway I would appreciate if someone could tell specifically what permissions are expected for each dir and files (I have heard that dirs should be 775 and files 664).
Since I can even upload pictures and add/edit files remotely using notepad++, filezilla, etc, I don't think it's an owner related problem.
Tired of researching I'm ready for being directed by a specialist.
