Support » Fixing WordPress » Permalinks Not Working in 2.1

  • When I use the default theme (with no editing to it whatsoever) and the default permalinks, the archive, category and other links work perfectly.

    However when I try to use any other configuration of permalinks, and update the htaccess, they dont work. But the htaccess looks fine to me.

    my install is in a subdirectory and the General Options Blog address has been updated to reflect that too. The htaccess output file I am using is:

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

    Does anyone have any ideas why the only permalinks that work are the default ones?

  • What seems to make this work again is the “Using Permalinks Without mod_rewrite” advice in the codex, and using the string:


    So, what this boils down to is that either mod_rewrite or htaccess doesnt work with 2.1 now, when it was working before. All my other htaccess files elsewhere on my site seem to work fine.

    The wordpress install where this isn’t working is entirely in a subdirectory (for a separate blog on a subdomain), while there is another wp install in the root directory (for the main site) — could this be the cause — multiple installs messing with apache?

    I’m having the same problem and the advice from the codex didn’t work. My installation is in the root, but my problem is identical to yours. I could disable permalinks, but I love them. I think the solution is to tweak the .htaccess file. I’ll post if I get it sorted out.

    is there any result ?

    abondanzieri – no need to bump every post that has “permalinks” in it. Life’s too short.
