I just reinstalled wordpress and noticed the following problem:


When my permalink is at default: http://localhost/wordpress/?p=123, I am able to view the site [http://localhost/wordpress/] and successfully click the tabs [about, author, etc' ...].


However, when I change the permalink to any other setting, I am still able to go into the main site [http://localhost/wordpress/], but the minute I click any tab, it comes back with an error:


Not Found

The requested URL /wordpress/about/ was not found on this server.


This is my .htaccess [which was created automatically by WordPress]:



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

# END WordPress



Any suggestions?

I played around with Wordpress on a local WAMP-based install, and it appears that .htaccess files don't work at all. I'm not sure if there is a way to get them to work... that would require some Google research.


Personally, I would leave this functionality alone for now, and test on a live, hosted website later. Your code shouldn't have any permalink/404 problems once it is online on a Linux based server.
