Trying to fix my permalinks. Created 1.htaccess and uploaded to the root directory that I am using. Renamed .htaccess and changed numeric value in file attributes to 666. If I try and use date and name based I get "No input file specified." If I go with just postname I get a 404. Started poking around and found .htacess in wp-admin. Figured the misspelling might have something to do with it. Renamed .htaccess and changed numeric value in file attributes to 666. Still nothing.
Opening root .htaccess in the template editor of WP reveals a blank file
And nothing else
