[resolved] weird Permalinks problems (.htaccess??) (3 posts)

    I am currently unable to get any permalinks to work except for the default. I actually have two different blogs on different domains with the exact same setup (at least I think they're the same). Both are with the same host, on a Linux server, with php 4.x. They both have the same .htaccess file. However, custom permalinks work with one and not the other. This leads me to believe that it is not a problem w/ the .htaccess file?

    My .htaccess file looks like this, and was created by wordpress (so it seems to be able to write to it, etc.):
    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    # END WordPress

    I'm really lost here. Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks!

    ok, somehow it is working today without any further changes. resolved, i guess.

  3. Note that some hosts (notably GoDaddy hosting) have a delay when a new .htaccess file is created. I do not know why, but when you create the .htaccess for the first time, it won't take effect for a few hours. After that, changes to the file will take effect immediately, but it takes a while before the very first creation of the file works.
