I used to use Xampp but I decided to try Wamp for my new WordPress project. After installing WordPress on local machine and chaning Permalinks to Post Name in admin I suddenly started getting these errors:
The requested URL was not found on this server.
Don’t you just love it when such errors appear? I forgot how I solved this in the past projects but remembered it has something to do with
.htaccess. After Googling and trying out few solutions nothing worked until I realized that with Wamp you can enable mod_rewrite via WAMPSERVER Control Panel (you will find it in your tray).
So just click on
WAMPSERVER icon, then
Apache Modules and then scroll down to
rewrite_module and enable it. Restart Apache (or restart all services) and your permalinks will work.
