The Basic Original WordPress htaccess file

When I install WordPress sometimes the .htaccess file for permalinks is never created, so I have to hunt around for it… sometimes you don’t want a fancy all-singing all dancing htaccess file, just the original… so here it is :

# BEGIN WordPress
# The directives (lines) between "BEGIN WordPress" and "END WordPress" are
# dynamically generated, and should only be modified via WordPress filters.
# Any changes to the directives between these markers will be overwritten.
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization}]
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
</IfModule>

# END WordPress

This one is for me more than you, but hey, there is a lack of info on the internet, and its up to me to set it straight…

Copy this in to a file named .htaccess and put it in the root of your WordPress website directory, in the same place as your wp-config.php

Copy, paste, upload, permalink.
