I have a .htaccess problem what buggs me out for couple of hours already. I have updated the file as it should be:

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

and Im working on localhost.

I've tried both paths:




Advice much appreciated,

What do you mean by "I've tried both paths..."? Where do you input them? – Krzysiek Dróżdż Jun 21 '13 at 15:11
Thanks @ Krzysiek Dróżdż C:\wamp\www\zootaxi.lv – Linards Berzins Jun 21 '13 at 15:16

mod_rewriteis probably not activated on your localhost that why permalink can't work. Just uncomment this line in apache :

#LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so
