Error 404 when acessing sublinks inside subdomain

I’m setting up a subdomain wordpress. Initially I’m acessing like “”, at first view looks fine, everything loads, the admin is working fine… but eventually when I try to change to another route like ‘/contacs’ I receive a 404 error… anyone has any idea what could it be ? I tried enable rewriting, symlinks and scripts in .htaccess on both folders… tried map a new config for this other instace of wordpress… but still isn’t working. I’m working with open lite speed versions, and since I’m new to that, idk how to configure it properly.

Hello @wagnercaetano

You can examine your config files if the virtual host contains any rewrite rules that will cause this behavior.

You can also check the current permalinks option inside your WordPress administrator area. The permalinks are the permanent URLs of your posts, pages, categories, and other archive pages on your website.

On the WordPress dashboard, go to Settings →︎ Permalinks Screen. You can choose one of the permalink structures or enter your own in the “Custom structure” field using the structure tags.

Hope that this helps!

It could due to config issue somewhere. If you aren’t sure how to check the config or log, then I’d recommend you to submit the issue to for further help, and update here with the solution.
