Support » Fixing WordPress » Permalinks and ReadyHosting

  • RoyCreative


    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

    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…

    pity thats the only way out of this
    thank you for advice and quick response
