Trying to get permalinks working in WordPress
New Linode user here. Very excited about it all so far, and just got my personal web site up and running here. I'm trying to get permalinks working in WordPress and for some reason I just can't figure it out.
I've turned AllowOverride to All everywhere I can find it and made sure FollowSymLinks is enabled everywhere I can find it. I've set up .htaccess the way WordPress tells me to, etc. But for some reason it still isn't working.
Any ideas what else to try here? I feel like I'm being obtuse and missing something obvious because this shouldn't be that hard.
If you are using virtual hosts, you will need your AllowOverride statements within the virtual host container:
EDIT: Never mind, it was an .htaccess problem. I thought I was writing changes to the file but I wasn't.
