Support » Fixing WordPress » Permalinks Question

  • Hi all,

    I searched for the answer to my question and found a lot on the subject of permalinks.
    I am trying to set them using this string:


    According to what I found I do not need to change the mod_rewrite rules if I set it up this way.

    However, when I use that and click on a permalink I get an error message: “No input file specified.”

    Any advice or help is appreciated! Thanks!

  • Have you put the permalink rewrite rules into a .htaccess file?

    Hi NuclearMoose!

    I thought if you used index.php as the start you did not need to use rewrite rules? It says this on the permalinks page:

    “In general for this you must use mod_rewrite, however if you put a filename at the beginning WordPress will attempt to use that to pass the arguments, for example:


    If you use this option you can ignore the mod_rewrite rules.”

    If I do need to add this, how do I do so? I am not familiar with the .htaccess file.

    You don’t rewrite rules, but you do need to turn on path info. If your server is Apache 2.0.30 or later, add this to your .htaccess.

    <Files "index.php">
    AcceptPathInfo On
