[resolved] Permalinks and .htaccess. Server Issues? (1 post)

    I just moved from my home windows box to my new ubuntu server edition box. Everything looks great I have apache2 running on the new unix box and I have mod_rewrite on and everything. The thing is that I still cannot use the "pretty" permalinks that I should be able to. Here is what AskApache RewriteRules Viewer says:

    > Permalink: /%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/
    > Writable .htaccess file found
    > mod_rewrite found
    > Not using pathinfo style index permalinks
    > Using mod_rewrite permalinks

    So I mean everything seems to be okay there. Now here is what my .htaccess says for me also.

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    Now when I put it on the nice permalinks I get a 404 error... I am using apache2 with ubuntu server edition. This is a fresh install of wordpress and nothing has been altered.. You can visit my site at

    If anyone has some help or some ideas that would be great. Thanks

    ps I have searched and searched nothing has helped me...
