I was trying to use
Code:
permalink feature
of
Code:
WordPress
on my
Code:
localhost
so I just made copy the code which was
Code:
generated by WordPress
when I clicked on
Code:
post name from Common Settings
. I saved that generated code in my localhost where the
Code:
wordpress index.php
file was stored in the name of
Code:
.htaccess
and now when I am going to visit the page, url bar of the
Code:
browser is showing the full address of the post
but the
Code:
post can not be seen on the browser
.Only the
Code:
404 Not Found error is comming
. Can someone tell me what is the wrong part here?
