    localhost WordPress problem

    Can i still react to this topic? I hope so...

    I am a recent user of WAMP and I installed Wordpress 3.5 on the localhost.
    When I visit the home page I created in Wordpress, everything works fine. But when I want to navigate to another page I created (by clicking it in the menu) I get the following message:

    Not Found

    The requested URL /wordpresstest1/even-voorstellen/ was not found on this server.

    Does anyone have a clue what I am doing wrong? Any help is much appreciated.

    Hi pelgrimrat,

    Welcome to the forums.

    Where did you install WordPress on your hard drive?
    For example, I use xampp to test locally and mine is located at C:/xampp/htdocs/wordpress.

    Also, could you post the contents of the .htaccess file located in your WP root folder.

    Hello Pullo,

    Thanks for the quick reply!!

    The Worpress installation is located at
    C:\wamp\www\wordpresstest1

    Content of the .htaccess file:

    -----------------------------------------------------
    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /wordpresstest1/
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /wordpresstest1/index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress
    ----------------------------------------------------

    Thanks for your time!

    No problem!

    The .htaccess file seems to be ok.
    Can you access your WP dashboard? (something like http://localhost/wordpresstest1/wp-admin/ for you).
    If so, go to "Settings" -> "General"
    What do you see listed under "WordPress Address (URL)" and "Site Address (URL)"?

    Yes, I can access the dashboard. I can also normally view the home page I created. The problem starts when I try to view the other pages.

    WordPress Address (URL): http://localhost/wordpresstest1
    Site Address (URL): http://localhost/wordpresstest1 (the same)

    Weird. That's all as it should be.

    If you go to "Settings" -> "Permalinks" what is your permalink structure?

    Try reverting it to "default" and see if that makes a difference.

    If it doesn't can you please post your new error message.

    It should now be different to

    Code:
    Not Found
    The requested URL /wordpresstest1/even-voorstellen/ was not found on this server.

    That did the trick!!!
    I had tried setting the permalinks to 'custom', bit it automatically changed back to 'post name'.
    Now I set it to 'default' and I can view the other pages as well!!

    Thank you so much for helping me so quickly! Now I can continue with the site!
