    Hi there, everyone. I spent the better part of today looking around google for help with activating permalinks. I’ve looked up and down, on forums and sites and everything, and now, five hours later, I’m still getting a 500 error when I try to activate any structure besides the default ?p=1 and whatnot.

    My .htaccess file generates in my host’s root folder automatically when I delete it, but my wordpress files aren’t in the root directory. Does this have something to do with the issue?

    Here’s what my .htaccess looks like:

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

    # END WordPress

    Pretty standard — but do I need to change the RewriteBase / or the /index.php, or both to point it to my wordpress files?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated guys, I’m nearing the point of no return.
