Support » Networking WordPress » WP 3.2 fresh linux install permalinks not working

  • Hi, I have an issue that I have seen posted various times over the last few days already but I haven’t found a solution yet.

    WP 3.2 fresh install
    PHP Version 5.2.6
    Linux 2.6.26-2-xen-amd64
    CGI/FastCGI
    This server is protected with the Suhosin Patch 0.9.6.2
    Apache2 mod_fcgid/2.3.6 mod_perl/2.0.4 Perl/v5.10.0

    PROBLEM: when I set the permalinks to anything but standard, I get a “forbidden” page (as soon as I delete the content of the .htaccess, everything is obviously fine again).

    I set permalinks to:

    Month and name http://XXXXX.com/2011/07/sample-post/

    I get:

    Forbidden
    You don’t have permission to access /wp-admin/options-permalink.php on this server.

    My .htaccess contains:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    
    # END WordPress

    Any idea what it could be? Mod_Rewrite usually works on all my other sites….
