    Problem with Wordpress Installation

    I have been building a site using WP as a CMS on MAMP on my desktop and now its all working I have changed the config file, uploaded it and uploaded the databse.

    The homepage looks fine but all the other pages, the permalinks dont work and Im not sure how to fix it. Its connecting to the database fine because it gets the homepage and the admin area ok.

    Has anyone ever come across this before?

    Many thanks

    Hey,

    Sounds like you have an .htaccess issue.

    Take a look at http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks

    Did you change the permalink from the default? If you did change it back and test it. If it works make it pretty again. That normally fixes it.

    Thanks guys! I think it is the htaccess problem. I'm having issues creating it on a mac to upload. Any tips?

    Make sure it wasn't already created, but maybe it was just skipped by the FTP client. You could try viewing all files (including hidden), if the FTP client has such an option.

    If it was working on your computer, I think it was probably already created. I think either it wasn't uploaded, or the server doesn't support it.

    I've replaced the htaccess file and made it writeable and visible. Now I no longer get the error in WP Admin when I set the 'pretty' permalinks but it still doesnt work when I navigate to a page!?! This is so frustrating! I'm one step away from a perfect site!!
