I have moved a Wordpress install to a client from sub folder to the root folder. Right now, everything works fine, except for the friendly URLs. I currently have to set the Permalink feature in "Common settings" to "Default", which means URLs with ?p=434... At least they work. Otherewise I get a very short 404 not found error message on a white screen. I was following this tutorial, but I found I cannot write an .htaccess to my Yahoo host account and so I could not follow one of the last steps... I wonder if the 404 not found errors have to do with this problem I have had uploading the .htaccess file... I currently do not have any .htaccess file up there... So maybe MOD_REWRITE is disabled... I have just ran phpinfo() and did not find any entry on mod_rewrite. Before moving the website, when it was still on a subfolder, the friendly URLs used to work, but now they don't. Has anyone came accross this experience and has successfully restablished the permalinks feature?
Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
