Post Names in Permalinks

If you don’t want to get the standard WordPress URL https://wordpress.philippe.appboxes.co/?p=123 you have to configure Permalinks to obtain the following format for example https://wordpress.philippe.appboxes.co/sample-post/ but Rewrite Mod have to be installed on the server. This is the case on a fresh install of WordPress with Appboxes but .htaccess files are not read, the problem is the same as on LAMP servers (WordPress installation is based on a LAMP server).

As with LAMP servers, you have to create a file with new configarions lines that will overwrite Apache standard configuration, the file has to be placed in /apps/wordpress.appboxname.appboxes.co/conf.d

You can find more informations and a sample file in this post

The .htaccess is already in the wordpress directory /public_html with all the needed rewrite rules.

# 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]
# END WordPress
