  • This issue just started and its driving me nuts! I have gone over every forum question about this and tried everything, but no matter what I do..every single time I change to any permalink structure other then default I get 404 errors on all of my pages. Please advise, thx 🙂

  • You can try the following:

    1. From the FTP access your .htaccess file and give it full permission 777 .

    2. Now open the .htaccess file in notepad (gedit in linux) and insert the following code

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

    3. Now, reupload the file to the root folder.

    4. Now try changing the permalink.

    The above is applicable for Linux hosting. If you are using windows hosting then install this plugin -> http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-htaccess-control/

    Check with your hosts that mod_rewrite is running on your server.

    I already have this exact code in my htaccess file. I have tried deleting and re-uploading, changing permissions, changing permalinks to default and back again but same error across all pages unless it stays on default which sucks for SEO purposes. Any other ideas?

    anyone?? i switched the theme back to default and deactivated all plugins and still same problem..this really sux..anyone’s help would be appreciated
