Support » Fixing WordPress » Removing index.php in Permlinks etc..
8 years, 10 months ago
I did a search but couldn’t find an answer.
I was wondering if it is possible to remove index.php in front of permlinks. I had it on my last version of wordpress but i think it did it automatically.
When i remove it from “custom permlinks” it does it, however a 404 error comes up?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
If you are on a Win server you can NOT remove it.
Well, I don’t know if Feyod is on a windows server, or a *nix box, but you can’t do it without URL rewriting enabled.
on a *nix box running Apache, the mod_rewrite module needs to be enabled. Talk to your host.
If it *is* a windows server, you might want to direct your host to a couple of very stable and well tested rewriting ISAPI modules.
The second one has a free ‘lite’ version which is excellent for people self-hosting.
both are completely wordpress compatible.
I am running Linux on a VPS using lighttpd.
then you’ll have to do the rewriting yourself.
You could have just googled this, like I did.
