Anyone having problems with WordPress .htaccess moving from MAMP to DigitalOcean?

  • Posted July 22, 2013

I had a Wordpress Site setup using the latest version of Wordpress using MAMP. Just moved it to DigitalOcean and the site permalinks/URLs are all not working now. I haven’t changed anything except of course the database info in wp-config.php.

Are there any specific things to be aware of on DO VPS?

Also, be sure that your VirtualHost in Apache has ‘AllowOverride All’ defined. This will ensure your rewrite rules are allowed.
