I have the problem that the my wordpress page permalink is not working without /index.php/%postname%/. If I remove it it says "Page not found". Can you please help me.

P.S. mod_rewrite is enabled


index.phpp is the main template file of the WordPress Theme. But without index.php will be active your theme but not work any functionality. So, if you want to active/work WordPress functionality then you must have index.php on your theme, otherwise it will break everything.

Q: Why you need to remove index.php file ?

See here https://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Development

  • I need to remove it, because it is not working well with WooCommerce. If I am for example in the checkout basket and click on something from the menu it just gives me a URL withour index.php. Thats why I need to remove it – Marco Oct 9 '16 at 11:18
