    Hi

    I’ve just downloaded WordPress and the Canvas theme but when I build pages I am getting index.php in the URL’s.  I am inclined to think that I’ve missed something on installation – any ideas?

    Thanks

    Debbie

    Hello,

    I too have this issue.

    I followed Jamie’s instructions to make links pretty but cannot get rid of ‘index.php’ in the urls.

    How do I do this?

    Thanks

    Mark

    Hi Mark/Debbie,

    This might be related to your hosting company server. Who are you hosting with and do you know whether it’s on Windows or Linux servers? It sounds like your websites might be running on Windows Servers which might be causing the problem.

    Here is an article that discusses it (Read the section on ‘Permalinks without mod_rewrite’)

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks#Using_.22Pretty.22_permalinks

    This is probably a question for your hosting company to see if they can fix.

    Thanks for the quick response.

    Windows? No thank you!

    It’s Linux and hosted with namesco (http://www.names.co.uk). I tried putting in a .htaccess file as below, but to no avail.

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    # END WordPress

    Hi Mark,

    hmmm not sure then. Could you raise a support ticket with names.co.uk and share their answer as it will help other members.

    Thanks,
    Jamie

    The reply I got was:

    “As we run Zeus and not apache for our shared hosting environment there is a limit to what you achieve using htaccess. We allow this to be used to create general password protection and custom error pages on our shared hosting cluster.”

    Is this peculiar to Zues? I am considering hosting elsewhere in order to resolve this issue and wondered if you have any experience of TSOHOST who appear to be highly regarded for WordPress hosting.

    Hi Mark,

    Yes it sounds like moving host is a good idea.

    I don’t personally have any experience of TSOHOST . The hosting companies that I use are Heart Internet and WPEngine.

    Let me know how the switch goes :)

    The issue was indeed to do with the hosting provider who also do not allow cron jobs which would prevent backups.

    I moved to TSOHOST and all is now OK and very pleased with the service so far. Fast and great control panel.
