    Change to:

    Custom Structure: /%postname%/

    Do not add the domain or index.php

    That is most likely due to your server environment which appears to be Microsoft-IIS/6.0.

    I would move to a Linux Server on a well known host.

    Are your URLs correct in Settings > general? If so it probably is the windows hosting, I had this issue a year or so ago and had to get the client to change their hosting to linux.

    You cannot use Permalinks in WordPress unless the host has a mod.expires.c module or other method to rewrite url's.

    This may or may not help.


    If your client wants this functionality, they should move to a new host. II6 is a very old and unsupported server env and will likely have issues with WP, themes, and plugins in general.


    IIS6 was released with Windows Server 2003. Yes, ten years ago. The mainstream product life cycle has ended. As such, consider it unsafe.
