[Resolved] Permalinks not working without index.php in the url
I’ve seen similar posts but no solution. If this hasn’t been fixed, perhaps this will help?
If my link looks like this then it will work:
If I change the permalink to eliminate index.php then I get a WordPress 404 error:
[and yes, htaccess is redirecting ok]
I found a link to what was supposed to be a fixed copy of classes.php, but it appears that the problem is still there in the version that I downloaded.
I put some debug code into classes.php and in the function parse_request() I find the following situation right before the comment that says “// The requested permalink is in $pathinfo for path info requests and in $req_uri for other requests”
Using index.php $pathinfo = 2006/01.. $requri = index.php
Without index.php $pathinfo = (blank) $requri = 2006/01..
A few lines later in the code, the value of $request in both cases is 2006/01/13/hello-world so it would seem that they both should have the same result.
However, when using index.php I notice a few lines later that the if statement with the comment “// If the requesting file is the anchor of the match, prepend it…” is executed and $request_match now contains the value index.php/2006/01.. while in the non-working case it remains the same as $request.
(By the way, why is the if statement in the while loop? It executes multiple times)
In any event, if $request_match contains “index.php” the permalink works and without it the 404 comes up.
