Support » Fixing WordPress » Permalinks help?

  • Hi all,
    Been having problems…I’d like to permalink something attached to the main page. However, I cannot make permalinks work. I have httpd-2.0.40-21.9.i386.rpm installed on my redhat9 system which means mod_rewrite is installed…so that’s not the problem. For some reason it just isn’t working. Any tips on or a quick how-to would help out greatly! Thanks for the help!
