WordPress: Nice Permalinks with Apache mod_rewrite and AllowOverride FileInfo

My WordPress installation has configured the permalinks as “post name”.

In order to make this really happen, I had to activate within Apache the “rewrite-module mod_rewrite.so” and allow something for the “.htaccess”.

Allowing for .htaccess means changing my Apache conf-file as follows:

  • FollowSymlinks
  • AllowOverride FileInfo
