I have read the FAQs for my hosting account (Linux hosting) at GoDaddy, and it says that the server is mod_rewrite enabled. It is evident from the fact that my wordpress install works fine with custom permalinks. Tried even using the stuff spewed by rewrite-rules.php. Nothing seems to work!
Mirce, I had disabled pretty permalinks for a while in between and I believe that is around when you must have checked the forums.
wyDay, I have kept the .htaccess file for about a day now, no results yet
Should I perhaps try to reinstall bb-press? The only thing I am concerned about is losing my WP data because I believe wp-users is one table that is shared if both are installed in the same database.
I would really like to get my pretty permalinks to work. I have tried both the tricks mentioned in the FAQ, still I am a bit clueless..
I just turned off the permalinks right now, which is the reason they work fine. I read about the same problem here: https://bbpress.org/forums/topic/29?replies=8 as Jaxia, but for me the pretty permalinks don’t work at all. I mean they are generated fine, but when I try any link, none of them seem to work. I will just turn permalinks on again and you can see for yourself.
