  • Check the permalink again, make sure the customized data is accurate.


    Still Not working.

    This is my .htaccess file.

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]
    #AllowOverride All
    ## uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$1 [L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ – [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]


    Try to rename .htaccess to .htaccess1. Then access your admin part of wordpress -> turn permalinks off -> turn permalinks on again. New .htaccess file should be created automatically. Then access your blog again and permalinks should work fine then.

    If problem will persist, check whether mod_rewrite works on the server or not.

    Hi Akgroup,

    I did the the same but .htaccess file is not getting created automatically.

    When you reset the permalinks, WP tells you exactly what to add to your .htaccess file.

    Its not giving such message what to do in .htaccess file.

    Have you tried changing the permissions on the .htaccess file to 777?

    Hello Esmi,

    I have set the permission to 777. But still not resolving the problem.
    Can you take my pc on team viewer to see the problem.
