I have seen similar issues with this in the past, not recently on forums though, and none that offer me a resolution.
I can publish a post fine and all, it is shown on my front page. All is good. But whenever I click on that post I get this error.
'The requested URL /archives/3 was not found on this server.'
I actually don't have an "archives" folder on my server, should I have created one initially?
I have no plugins relating to permalinks. I did change the settings from default, however going back to default makes no difference. Any ideas?
