I have installed the latest WordPress on my EC2 Ubuntu 13.1 server. Once I have changed the permalink to use /%post-name%/, I encounter 404 not found for posts. I have followed almost everything here in this article (Page Not Found - Permalink WordPress — FelfelWorld.com), but still having the issue.

FYI, I remember I did disable the directory listing for my apache server using SELinux (if I remember it correctly)

  • can you post your .htaccess, is it like in the blog you postet? – user9 Nov 1 '13 at 15:13

sounds like a htaccess issue... try a .htaccess file in the wordpress root with the content (which differs in one line from your posted blog):

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

Make sure your webserver has the rewrite module turned on. eg. If using Wamp and Apache: Click Wamp tray icon, Apache > Apache Modules > rewrite module (make sure it is selected).
