I am having some mega frustrations with rewriting things on a local Wordpress install (installed via Bitnami). How does rewriting work in WP? It seems to have some PHP/database system plus a basic .htaccess file at the root of Wordpress?
Anyway I had this problem running on a basic WampServer setup https://stackoverflow.com/questions/22362774/basic-htaccess-rewrite-rule-not-working/22363852#22363852, which was solved. But now when I try it on this WP server I just get a page that says
Not Found It looks like nothing was found at this location. Maybe try a search?"
It looks like something in Wordpress is preempting my rewrite rules, but I have no idea what. Where is this Not Found page coming from? With WampServer I get a plain page with a message that says something like "file could not be found at /path/it/attempted".
I also tried a plugin simply called Rewrite, which didn't seem to do anything either.
