Support » Installing WordPress » Upgrade 2.6.5 – No Permalinks Working

  • I upgraded three blogs today to v2.6.5. The first two went flawlessly, and I got careless and clumsy with the third. I didn’t make a complete backup and now, after the upgrade, none of the links work (including Pages, Archives, etc.)

    Here’s the blog:

    The careless mistake that I made was deleting my wp-config.php file. So I needed to generate new KEYS when creating the new config file. Could that have something to do with this?

    All of the posts still exist when I login and attempt to edit. And even if i re-publish a post or click the VIEW THIS POST link in the editor, I get the 404 page. Worse, still, I’m getting the SERVER 404 page, not the WordPress 404 error.

    Any ideas?!?

  • Have you tried changing to the default permalinks? If so, do the pages work then? I think this an htaccess problem. Do you have a backup of that file? If so, delete the one that is there and replace with the backup.

    Ok – switching to default permalinks definitely worked. However, I have lots of links to the pages based on the “Day and Name” link structure. Any suggestions for getting that to work again?

    I don’t have a backup of htaccess, but did not edit it previously. I’ll do a little research on that and see if I can figure it out. But if anyone has an additional suggestion in this regard, I’d appreciate it.

    Thanks for the fast help so far!

    Hey kwbridge – after simply waiting an hour or so and switching the permalinks back to the setting I wanted, everything now seems to be functioning! Thanks for the suggestion.

    Hmm … maybe someone else can tell you why it is working again. For now, I’m glad everything is accessible.
