  • Fixed this issue.

    Changed Settings -> Permalinks from Post Name option to Default option. Pages all became accessible so changed back to Post Name and no more problems at this stage.

    Marked as resolved.

    Thanks for the followup. I will have a better check for that in the next few versions.

    That fix worked for me too. Thanks!

    I am getting page not found message when i try to access some of my vbulletin form options, can anyone help?

    I have switched Permalinks, default works but post name still does not work…any idea?


    Thank you so much … This has totally helped!

    CLUE — might be a good idea to add to the FAQ section to the plugin! Will save a LOT of headaches for anyone else who goes through this. the ONLY way I found this was googling “client denied by server configuration” after I got no help from my hosting service (which btw, I may be switching from). UGH … But YAY! No more errors!

    What worked for me –

    • Set permalinks to default
    • Re set permalinks to day and month.

    The old (and readable) permalink structure works fine once again!

    Thanks, that worked, but needed to do a “F5” .

    The secret for me was that my .htaccess file needed some edits to be able to change permalinks, but better-wp-security was set to prevent edits of .htaccess!

    1. On the Security page, Tweaks tab, turn off Protect Files.

    2. Under Settings > Permalinks, change to something other than Default.

    3. Back to the Security > Tweaks tab and turn Protect Files back on!

    Protect Files was conflicting with Permalinks for me.

    Thanks @davidwoods

    This almost got me there. You also need to:

    1.B On the Tweaks page, under Other Tweaks turn off uncheck “Remove write permissions from .htaccess and wp-config.php”

    3.B Turn “Remove write permissions from .htaccess and wp-config.php” back on

    I had the same problem today. It seems to have been resolved by deactivating the plugin and then reactivating it, but I’m concerned the problem might come back. Should I do the .htaccess file edits that DavidWoods and regiscassidy specified?

    damn, wish i read this page earlier.

    i didnt have delete all the wp installation
    here my story here
