I have WordPress running on a windows server. The installation has been working correctly for about a month, but a few days ago I noticed that I could not follow permalinks to pages on my site anymore without getting “404 – File or directory not found.” and I also cannot create new pages.

Yes I tried re-saving the permalinks but it did not fix anything.

I checked the site health checkup and there are two critical issues:

2 Critical issues: 1. Severely outdated SQL server 2. Background updates are not working as expected

I cannot figure out the problem here… Could either of those things cause the permalinks to stop working and prevent the creation of new pages?
