I’m running WordPress locally under Windows 10 using MAMP.

My problem. As soon as I save my Permalink changes I just get this error:

You don’t have permission to access /wp-admin/options-permalink.php on this server.

I can’t view any page of the site on either the front end or the admnin.

If I delete the htaccess file everything works again.

I’ve tried adding the htaccess file manually and it just gives me the same error.

Do you know what could be causing this issue?
