    hey all.. i just installed wordpress 1.5 and everything seems to be fine except

    when i tried changing permalinks to date and name based


    all i get are 404s.

    additionally, whenever i try to browse a category, i also get 404s.

    Your Permalinks are broke. Check that link for troubleshooting tips.

    In particular, confirm with your host that mod_rewrite and AllowOverride are both on and enabled.

    And consider using WP 2.0.5, much newer.
