On my wordpress installation mod_rewrite (e.g. the permalinks) is temporarily broken. For debugging I want to access the formerly "prettified" page mydomain.tld/page/2. What is the old GET parameter for it?

get parameter for this is paged. Example: mydomain.tld?paged=2

The query string format-- the "default" permalink-- should always work. For posts that is ?p=<post-id> for pages it is ?page=<page-id>, though ?p= will also work for pages (with the overhead or a redirect). Categories are ?cat=<cat-id>. Tags are ?tag=<tag-id>. There are many others.
