Permalinks broken – Directs to 404

  • Good morning WordPress community.

    I have an issue I hope someone will be able to aid me with.

    I’ve installed WordPress on an intranet in order to make a Wiki style knowledge base. Works fine. We’re running a Fedora server (9 I believe) and so far so good. mod_rewrite is enabled and all the goodies as dictated in the codex.

    Strangely enough it … well, just doesn’t work.

    Whenever we do a simple permalink such as /%category%/%postname% it goes 404 – not WP 404 but server 404.

    Now, I can go pathinfo style ala index.php/%category%/%postname% and that works in general, however it won’t allow for RSS or for accessing a post. All pages (parents and children) access perfectly fine.

    We are operating this site off a subdomain: lightbulb.ourdomainname.com/kb

    But I don’t see how that would cause any problems.

    Here is our .htaccess information – basic WP stuff:

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

    So, I’m slightly confused here folks. I’ve cleared the permalinks countless times – logged in/out – viewed in different browsers – cleared cache … nada.

    If you fine folks have any ideas, please let me know. It would be much appreciated.
