Permalinks and ReadyHosting (4 posts)

    I have a install located at the above URL. I'm converting an iWeb site to WordPress. I developed it on a local server where everything worked fine with permalinks. When I transferred it to readyhosting the permalinks don't work anymore, I get a 404 error. Has anyone else had a problem with readyhosting? There are all sorts of unnecessary redirects going on with the iWeb site, you can see by visiting http://www.alchemyandcommerce.com/

    I also notice there is an httpd.ini file that says:


    ### subdomain redirect v2 ###
    RewriteCond Host: (?:.+\.)?alchemyandcommerce\.com
    RewriteCond URL ^/(.*)
    RewriteCond METHOD GET
    RewriteRule ^/(.*) /$1 [I,L]
    RewriteCond Host: (?:.+\.)?alchemyandcommerce\.com
    RewriteCond METHOD POST
    RewriteRule ^/(.*) /$1 [I]
    RewriteCond Host: (?:.+\.)?alchemyandcommerce\.com
    RewriteRule (.*) /$1 [I,L]

    Not sure if this is causeing a problem.

    Yes - I have the problem with it!
    I also want to make friendly URLs on my WP site on readyhosting but it works only with /index.php in beginning of any URL and it's not good.

    I noticed that for disabling it you need ISAPI_Rewrite mod (mod_Rewrite on Apache) and edit the "httpd.ini" file, but I don't even know where to find it. Can somebody help?

    I eventually found a solution to this, without any help from ReadyHosting, but it slowed my site down so much that it wasn't worth it. 20+ seconds to load pages with little content, and no plugins. The real solution is not to host WP on ReadyHosting. Try HostGator or something else...
