    In the guide I wrote here:
    I state at the bottom how to get permalinks working.
    There have been a few posts here saying people cannot get it working so I just installed a new test blog on my xampp and did just what my page above says.
    And it works:

    I’m using the following on WinXP
    ApacheFriends XAMPP (basic package) version 1.5.0-pl1
    + Apache 2.0.55
    + MySQL 5.0.15 + Bug #13783
    + PHP 5.0.5 + PHP 4.4.1-pl1 + PEAR

    So permalinks .. do they work for you on your xampp ?
    If not, which package did you install and which OS are you using ?

  • I had some troubles with this also, and I believe crossed your post. What worked for me and I don’t think I found this somewhere was to double check for occurences of “allow override none” and change them to “allow override all”. I think I had to change two instances in the apache config file.

    Also having problems here. I’m on Mac OSX 10.3.9 with XAMPP 0.5 for OSX.
    In httpd.conf I have
    LoadModule rewrite_module modules/
    uncommented, and I’ve set every instance of AllowOveride to All.

    Permalinked urls just return a blank page (not a 404).

    Any help much appreciated!


    Discovered the answer – there appears to be a bug in PHP 4.4.1, as referred to at the foot of this page in the codex..
    and here

    Switching to PHP 5.0.5 solved the problem for me.

    I can’t seem to get permalinks to work. I have LoadModule rewrite_module modules/ uncommented but all links on the localhost site go to

    Object not found!

    The requested URL was not found on this server. The link on the referring page seems to be wrong or outdated. Please inform the author of that page about the error.

    If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.
    Error 404
    04/18/06 05:02:39
    Apache/2.2.0 (Win32) DAV/2 mod_ssl/2.2.0 OpenSSL/0.9.8a mod_autoindex_color PHP/5.1.1

    When disabling permalinks and deleting the .htaccess file all links work except on the front page the “previous entries” paged link is 404.
