WordPress – Tags fix – Permalink Issue

WordPress – Tags fix – Permalink Issue

After the upgradation of WordPress found the following error.

Tags were displayed on the bottom of the page. When clicked on the tag the page started returning a “404 Not found” error.

Doing some research found that its being created by Permalink. When Permalink set to default, the tag clicks works perfect.

After doing an intensive research the best and easy solution is as following:

  • Go to Plugin -> Add New
  • Search “WCS Custom Permalinks Hotfix” (without the quotes) or Download from the link
  • Install the Hotfix and Activate the same.


Fixing WordPress – Internal Server Error

Fixing WordPress – Internal Server Error

Today while browsing my WordPress Website I got the  “Internal Server Error”  message.

While checking the error logs on my cPanel found that there was something wrong with the .htaccess file on the root of the domain.

The following needs to be done.

Go to file manager from your domain/hosting control panel. On the root of  the domain, open .htaccess and make sure that the data on the file should look like the following:

# 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


Anything apart from the above data should be deleted. Save the file and refresh the page.



Finally after spending an hour figured out that the WAMP services needs to be manually installed/started.

Some time software do really act strange (never mind at the end its designed by human), have installed so many times earlier but didn’t face similar problem.

Need to Click on Install Services 1st for both Apache and MYSQL, then start the  services and works great now.
