Permalinks 404 error on new site (10 posts)

    Hello!

    I'm getting the permalink 404 error pages with a newly setup wordpress site.

    Have tried
    - switching to an unedited version,
    - replaced the htaccess file over and over, (it is being written to)
    - also disabled plugins
    - still no pretty premalinks.

    Any help is much appreciated: http://www.lifelinecfs.org/wordpress/

    Hello again,

    This is what I have found that works; if I add '/index.php/%postname%/'
    in the Custom Structure --
    I'd prefer not to have index.php in the link structure. Any suggestions on how to proceed?

    Thanks!
    D

    Have you tried resetting your custom permalinks back to the default setting and renaming your WordPress .htaccess file. If that works, then try reading Using_Permalinks before setting a custom permalink structure again. Documentation: http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks.

    Thank you for the response. Yes, I have again reset the custom permalinks back to default and renamed the .htaccess file. Yes, I have been reading the "Using_Permalinks" documentation - and have tried changing the var.php file

    I was hoping to get help with this particular issue.

    Has anyone found a workaround the need to add pathinfo into the custom permalink?

    Thank you.

    Is your site hosted on a Windows server?

    Apache/2.2.15 (Fedora) Server

    In that case, I think you need to have a word with your hosts. It shouldn't be necessary to use index.php in the permalink structure on an Apache server. Something is seriously wrong on the server.

    that's what I was wondering - this is a private run server. I'd like to ask nicely : ) what is the question I should pose?

    It should be mod apache url rewrite
    but i guess you should be able to do that in your htacess file

    Ask your hosts to check that mod_rewrite is running on your server & is correctly configured. My guess is that it's running but isn't configured correctly.
