I have a WordPress installation and I would like to configure permalinks with the post name rather than the default ?p=xx syntax.

But I just get a 404 when accessing the posts, and I am not sure where it goes wrong.

I’ve tried the suggestions provided by WordPress (setting the permissions of .htaccess to 660 and then re-saving the permalinks options in the WP backend), and even deleting the .htaccess file, but it successfully gets recreated.

I’ve looked at the phpinfo() output to verify that mod_rewrite is loaded.

What else could it be?
