You are running Apache, have installed WordPress and are trying to get pretty permalinks working and it keeps returning a 404 page.
You’ve tried everything – a2enmod rewrite, removed the .htaccess file, reset the permalinks, changed them back to the pretty version, restarted Apache – in short everything people tell you.
The problem is still there isn’t it? The internet sucks, nobody knows anything.
Sit back, have a nice drink and we’ll have it fixed in seconds.
Edit the main Apache config file (/etc/apache2/apache2.conf in my case).
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks AllowOverride None Require all granted
Change it to:
Options All AllowOverride All Require all granted
Want to thank me? This server has google ads and I receive a nominal amount per click.
Feel free to comment :)
