    Hi all,

    I have been developing a website on my localhost, and have just put it over to a virtual server. The only page which loads is the homepage. When I use ‘Post Name’ as my permalink, it doesn’t work, and i get the default apache 404 – Not the custom one on my theme. The same happens when i put %/postname% in the custom structure.

    Does the server have mod_rewrite? Did the .htaccess file get generated correctly?

    this is what is in my .htaccess file:

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

    Check that anti-hotlinking isn’t enabled in your hosting account. If it is, try disabling it.

    What do you mean by hosting account?. It has been installed natively on a virtual machine, so I don’t have a hosting account :/

    i dont know who moved this, as it’s not a localhost install. It’s a transfer from a localhost server, to a virtual server on the internet – therefore, the issue isn’t on localhost.

    I have set mod_rewrite to on, enabled override, deleted and regenerated a .htaccess file. The only way it will work is if I set permalinks to ‘index.php/%postname%’.

    exactly…. the website was transferred from localhost to a live internet server, and the issue is with the internet server, therefore, not a localhost issue.

    There’s some stuff here on pathinfo permalinks, which seems to be what you have. Might give you some clues on how to get it to work with pretty permalinks.

    Try to set the permalink back to Default and see how it goes. If it is work then change the permalink back to any options you like. I had a similar problem and my site worked fine after I tried this.
