Permalinks not working – Please Help

  • leevigraham


    Hey guys,

    I am having major issues with wordpress 2.3, Apache/1.3.33 and permalinks on Mac OSX Tiger.

    I have read the permalinks codex a 1000 times.

    First a bit of other information:

    I am running my own apache server. Here is the Virtual Host Setup:

    <VirtualHost *>
        ServerName sap.dev
    	documentRoot /Users/leevigraham/Sites/Clients/0165_summit_prevention_alliance/
    	<Directory "Users/leevigraham/Sites/Clients/0165_summit_prevention_alliance/">
    		Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
    		AllowOverride All
    		Order allow,deny
    		Allow from all

    I cannot get pretty permalinks domain.com/about or nearly pretty permalinks working domain.com/index.php/about.

    I have checked the .htaccess file:

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

    and that also looks fine.

    I also have an Expression Engine site running on the same server that successfully uses mod_rewrite.

    In apache my loaded modules include mod_rewrite

    Loaded Modules	mod_php5, mod_bonjour, mod_hfs_apple, mod_setenvif, mod_so, mod_log_forensic, mod_auth, mod_access, <strong>mod_rewrite</strong>, mod_alias, mod_userdir, mod_actions, mod_imap, mod_asis, mod_cgi, mod_dir, mod_autoindex, mod_include, mod_negotiation, mod_mime, mod_log_config, http_core

    Does anyone have any ideas what might be the problem?

    Oh and Im also running PHP Version 5.2.2



    One other thing… /index.php?/about/ does work



    Which directory have you place the .htaccess file into?

    With one of mine, I put it into the sub-domain as well as the root directory of the site, e.g., on your ftp program:

    1. above the WWW or WWWROOT (whatever this is called!!) directory

    2. IN that directory.

    3. In the subdirectory that your blog is in (if it is in one).

    Try that, if you haven’t already. Otherwise I’m not sure, I think the next step is to ascertain whether your webhost allows mod-rewrite rules, though I’m sure to be corrected!
