How to Fix Wordpress' "Not Found" Error

Are you getting a "not found" error when visiting pages during the setup of your Wordpress site? It's a simple thing to fix...don't worry! This brief guide shows you how easy it is.

Get your Wordpress site's admin panel open, navigate over to "Settings" and let's get started.

Is This the Error You're Seeing?

Not Found

The requested URL /my-category/my-page was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

About the Wordpress "Not Found" Error

If you're reading this, you must have gotten it!

One of the scariest things a webmaster or blogger could see on their Wordpress blog is the dreaded "Not Found" error. If it shows up, it appears when visiting any non-home page area of your site. Don't worry, though - it's a simple, stupid issue that takes seconds to fix :)

The Cause

Why did this happen in the first place?

This error is most likely due to the fact that you've changed your Wordpress permalink structure. The settings for your permanlink structure are found in your Admin panel, under Settings » Permalinks. Basically, it lets you choose how the URLs of your Wordpress site will look.

The default is always the first radio button, which says "http://www.mysite.com/?p=123". However, if you're like me - you'd rather have something more search engine friendly like "http://www.mysite.com/category/page" -- and you probably selected the last option which says "Custom Structure," then saved the change. This is where the error occurs!

Here's the reason why: by default, your .htaccess file is CHMODded to 644: disallowing Wordpress to successfully edit it. You'll even see the message in your admin panel under "Permalinks" that says this:

If your .htaccess file were writable, we could do this automatically, but it isn't so these are the mod_rewrite rules you should have in your .htaccess file. Click in the field and press CTRL + a to select all.

It is very easy to look past this message due to the fact that it's at the bottom of the screen, appearing in italics, and nearly blending in with the box above it. Anyway - in order to successfully change your permalink structure, you would have had to make the permission settings of your .htaccess file more lenient, so that Wordpress can be able to write changes within it.

If you see the "If your .htaccess file were writeable..." message, that's root of your problem! Read below for the simple fix :)

How to Fix the Error - Don't worry, it's super easy...and quick

  1. Get into your website's FTP space, and look for the .htaccess file
  2. Highlight the .htaccess file in your FTP program, and open its CHMOD settings. It's probably set to 644. Change it to 666.
  3. Go back into your Wordpress site's admin section, and navigate to Settings » Permalinks.
  4. Edit the link structure to whatever you originally wanted, and then save it. You should no longer see a "grayed out" .htaccess box on this page, saying that the file is not writable.
  5. Visit any page of your site, refresh, and confirm that the error no longer occurs.
  6. Finally, as a security measure, go back to your FTP space and change your .htaccess file from 666 back to 644 (for security purposes) since you probably will never have to edit it through the Wordpress admin panel ever again.

Hi, This didn't work for me. My RSS feed also gives a 404 error if I have a custom permalink structure.

Reverting back to the default permalink structure fixes the 404 on both the categories and RSS url's.

Any ideas.?

I made an awful mistake by changing permalinks without redirecting them first. A week later after discovering that I have lost all my traffic. There is 96 404 errors. I got panicked and set it back to original (previous) permalinks. Now it has been a total of 2 weeks that I have lost traffic and lost my google position of some great keywords. I set it back a week ago. I still do not see any improvements. Do you have any suggestions as what else I should do? Thank you.

Pixelrage LM 6 years ago Author

@eJewelrySource: Sure - I highly suggest you 301 redirect the main "buckets" of your site to their new counterparts. If you have the time to do this - the best thing you can do is individually 301 redirect every individual page to its new one. I just happen to have a tutorial on it: https://turbofuture.com/internet/301-2 :) Aside from that, there are 301 redirect plugins for Wordpress that will handle it automatically for you. Unfortunately, it's not retroactive, but a measure going forward.

Hi there! This helped me so much after detecting this scary error after WP 3.01 upgrade. MTHX from Hamburg / Germany


anonymous 6 years ago

Thank you so much!! I got a server error and freaked out but your advice worked. I visited the permalinks section of the Wordpress Admin pages, saved settings and everything works again. You rightly pointed out that I had changed my permalinks to /%category%/%postname%


anonymous 6 years ago

I tried your fix as noted above but with no results. What do you suggest if this occurs weeks after the install? The posts work fine but any new pages I add do not show up.

Pixelrage LM 6 years ago Author

@anonymous: HI Trav, what kind of error are you getting when you attempt to visit those pages? Just a white screen, or any kind of error on it?


anonymous 6 years ago

@Pixelrage LM: First, thank you for your assistance.

After spending the past two days frustratingly scouring forums and articles across the web, I finally figured it out. I logged out and logged back in with another browser and when I did that, I realized I could now see the "page not found" page on Safari but couldn't see it on Firefox as I had initially been able to.

Still perplexed, I did a new search on the Wordpress forum, "can only view pages when logged in". One of the results was, "Show certain pages to registered users only." I immediately recalled installing a plug-in I wanted to test to restrict "non-subscribers" from certain pages. I guess I forgot to deactivate it.

I'm sorry if I wasted your time. Again, I appreciate you trying to help me figure it out.

(Note to self: stop playing around with new plug-ins!)

@anonymous: hmm, the /index.php/ is the strangest part of that. Is your .htaccess file writable? Try setting it to 777 and saving your permalinks setting one more time. See how that works. It sounds almost like it is not writing to .htaccess correctly.


surinderkumar 5 years ago

@Pixelrage LM: thanks for your reply, but i have tried this before , changing the style of permalinks even it not work for me. i have .htaccess file and is writable, i am looking forward for your reply.

anonymous 5 years ago

Thanks for this information. I took the easy way out first and tried to reset my permalinks to default and then change it back to the custom settings I wanted and that fixed it without having to go into the .htaccess file. Otherwise I would have had to follow your great instructions. Thank you!!!

what's the correct path to .htaccess?


anonymous 5 years ago

Thanks for the instructions. I've got the same error, but the solution did not help me.

I am using Wordpress 3.0.3.The Permalink of the pages that generated the 404 errors have partial page title instead of the usual "http://%home%/?page_id=page-number". The error is likely due to non-existing page name.

I wonder if the author or anyone has encountered the same issue. Thanks.


Pixelrage LM profile image

Pixelrage LM 5 years ago Author

@anonymous: hey there, it should be in your root directory (public_html) - make sure you don't have it hidden somehow in your FTP. If it doesn't exist, you can simply use a "free htaccess generator" (Google that term) to create one.


anonymous 5 years ago

TQVM!!!!

You save my day!

Been looking for this solutions for days!


anonymous 5 years ago

@anonymous: I have.

You need to go into database, and find the old post with the same postname (in the postname column).

Manually delete this row from your DB.

Then , update your htaccess to 664 (I don't recommend 666).

Then re-save permalinks, (just click update).

Will work after that

I hadn't changed the permalink settings but changing the .htaccess settings resolved it just the same.

Thanks for the tip.

@anonymous: Its the same thing really, either edit the .htaccess or just reset the permalinks inside your admin section and it will edit the .htaccess for you.

Hi, In my google webmaster tools it says " The target URL does not exist and your server is not returning a 404 (file not found) error". Can someone tell me how to fix this please? Thanks / Tissy


anonymous 4 years ago

Thank you for this ! I was able to solve my problem really quickly (I was very worried so thank you so much)


anonymous 4 years ago

This help me. Many thanks.


anonymous 4 years ago

Thanks so much. The fix worked like a gem. Of course I had to create and add a .htaccess file first, but after that, everything was as you said.


anonymous 4 years ago

Thanks for sharing this solution you saved my day


anonymous 4 years ago

Thanks!! Was the exact problem. You can also just copy and paste that code into your .htaccess file yourself if you want to avoid messing with the chmod settings!


anonymous 4 years ago

worked great right from my dashboard, didn't need to create any new files. Thanks so much!

Before going crazy and rewriting all codes, first make sure you have the "rewrite_module" checked, in Apache > Apache modules > check rewrite_module. Hope it helps :)

Not working. My wordpress site still get 404 error, all pages are not visitable except the home page.:(


anonymous 3 years ago

If after doing all that was suggested in this site and you still get the 404 error, then try editing the httpd.conf file under the apache config directory and set the following params:

Search for the word "mod_rewrite" (without quotes) and uncomment it.

Search for "AllowOverride" (without quotes) and delete None and type All

I fix it, just select the "redirect" in the settings for the domain. And now your site should show in search engines.
