I have the same problem here. Using the structure, say, example below <br> <br> <br> <br>/%category%/%post_id%-%postname% <br> <br>sent me to 404 error. <br> <br>I use Webuzo as my panel.

Did you follow a guide on install wordpress? If so, can you link it?

@Kamal, Im not sure what that is? <br>

Yup still doesnt work

Can you pastebin your nginx virtualhost config?

Have you tried restarting Nginx?

ahh ok. So i just tried /%postname%/ <br> <br>But i still get a 404 not found ?

It’s not enough to have: <code>/</code>. You need to use a <a href=“”>Structure Tag | WordPress Codex</a>.

Yes custom structure is set to /

From the WordPress Dashboard, go to Settings => Permalinks. Do you have <code>Custom Structure</code> selected? What value have you set?
