Support » Fixing WordPress » updating htaccess

  • Resolved ronchicago


    i have read the various posts on this forum regarding updating htaccess but each does not tell me what i should do with my setup:

    1) i am on a mac and apache server and have mod_rewrite active.

    2) i am using the default config = ugly (any ‘strong” reason to change to pretty?)

    3) when i try to update permalinks i get the update htaccess blurb. there are no suggested rules at the bottom of my page. note: i get this message on an older site and brand new one with only two posts on it.

    4) i changed the chmod on my htaccess to 666 and will go back to 644 as needed

    5) i read the codex link =

    my question is…

    what do i need to do to update the permalinks and is it best practice to go pretty, and if so, an easy fix from ugly with both my old and new site. is there anything else i need to know?

  • two months later and i finally go back to this issue. i change from ugly to pretty. i try to update htaccess but no can do. then i read forum advice for the 99th time. bingo! i change my htaccess from 644 to 666 via cpanel and everything is updated! now i am back at 644. onwards and upwards!
