WordPress - Permalinks - Apache on Ubuntu

  • Posted December 26, 2013

I got LAMP installed on my Ubuntu 12.04 droplet just fine, but I’m having a difficult time getting the permalinks working.

I know that this requires mod_rewrite, which I have installed on my server, but it is still not working.

Is there a list of steps somewhere on how to prepare apache for WordPress?

I’m having the same issue. Pablo, can you tell me how I can check and update all the files & directories in my WordPress folder to www-data:www-data ?

If you care about performance, you’ll go with Nginx instead of Apache. <i>See</i> <br> <br>1.) <a href=“”>How To Migrate a WordPress Installation from Apache to Nginx on an Ubuntu VPS</a>; <br> <br>2.) <a href=“”>How To Configure Single and Multiple WordPress Site Settings with Nginx</a>; <br> <br>3.) <a href=“”>How To Install Wordpress, Nginx, PHP, and Varnish on Ubuntu 12.04</a>. <br> <br>With that said, you probably have a permissions problem. Make sure all the files & directories in your WordPress installation are owned by <code>www-data:www-data</code>.
