There have been some issues with mod_rewrite, WordPress and the permalink functionality.  In some cases, when having mod_rewrite enabled, WordPress fails to load the Settings > Permalink page.  Some people experience a blank screen, while others experience a 404 Page Not Found error.

If there are no issues in your .htaccess, and you have exhausted all other options, you may need to modify the WordPress core:


~Line 16, change function got_mod_rewrite() { to function got_mod_rewrite() {return true;

~Line 42, change function got_url_rewrite() { to function got_url_rewrite() {return true;

If anyone has any other suggestions, please let us know!
