Permalinks Issue Please help (8 posts)

    I recently moved my site onto a new server about a month ago, and have yet been able to get the Permalinks working correctly. I have an .htaccess file in the directory, and when the permissions are set to anything but 777, Wordpress tells me to add the re_write rules myself. I do that, and NOTHING.

    So then, I modify the .htaccess file to permissions with 777 and then update the Permalinks again. Still nothing.

    I have checked out the httpd.conf file in the etc/httpd/conf folder, and it seems that mod_rewrite is enabled.

    Please help, I really have no idea what I am doing, and this is as far as I can get. What am I missing?

    Check out the httpd.conf file and make sure Apache is actually reading and following the htaccess file.

    "AllowOverride FileInfo Options" in the vhost is what you're looking for.

    I am not exactly sure where I type the "allowOverride Fileinfo Options" at

    this is the only place in the file that has vhost though;


    LoadModule vhost_alias_module modules/

    I ll be honest, I am not very familiar with code.

    Ok, I looked for AllowOverride, and saw a few things. I saw that AllowOverride was showing Deny when it came to the .htaccess file as well as

    # Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
    AllowOverride All < used to say deny >

    I changed these things, and re-uploaded a htaccess file, started over. and still nothing.

    Does your htaccess file have anything in it?

    I read some where that I should have it installed in the root folder. Right now however, all of my files are on
    home/zukny/sites/mymorningstory/www/ (all files including htaccess here)

    Here is the code showing in my htaccess file`RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase BASE/

    #uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/$ index.php [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !.*wp-content/plugins.*
    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/(.*) wp-content/blogs.php?file=$2 [L]
    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^.*/wp-admin$
    RewriteRule ^(.+)$ $1/ [R=301,L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule . - [L]
    RewriteRule  ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-.*) $2 [L]
    RewriteRule  ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ $2 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]
    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    <Files async-upload.php>
    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    I have decided to erase and go back to wordpress. When the permalinks did work, some people couldn't sign up to my website. When the permalinks don't work my website didn't work.

    When buddy press and wordpress mu are activate, it takes up more ram then should ever be taken up. even My server crashed multiple times saying ( Unexpected server error)

    So I am going back to simple wordpress, until buddypress gets better.
