When I upgraded to Snow Leopard, the permalinks (clean URL’s) on my local WordPress setup stopped working.
Instead of getting:
I would get:
I was too busy then and couldn’t care less so I left it alone. Now I’m working on my blogs again and it sucks not to have permalinks working. So I did a little Google search and it turns out it wasn’t rocket science to have this turned on.
So now I’m going to show you how to enable mod_rewrite on Snow Leopard.
replace <username> with your Mac username
Then change this:
Options Indexes MultiViews
Allow from all
Options Indexes MultiViews FollowSymlinks
Allow from all
Restart Apache under System Preferences » Sharing » Web Sharing
And you’re good to go. mod_rewrite is now enabled and your permalinks will work.
I’m finally caught up with WordPress 2.1.3 but WordPress 2.2 is just around the corner. Ok maybe I’m not so caught up since I still have a few blogs to upgrade but it feels good to be caught up here at the very least.
There, enough geek talk.
Now as far as work’s concerned I’m still waaaaay behind schedule. So I guess I’m not caught up at all.
