: Newly published page URL not working
: Lukey September 18, 2016, 08:43:21 AM
I've just written a new page, it generates a permalink for me but when I click it the page doesn't load. I get ;
The requested URL /dotpress/aboutus.php was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

If permalinks aren't working, try going to "Settings -> Permalinks" in the admin and hitting "Save" just to make sure that WP properly generates the .htaccess file that processes them.
If that's not the problem, then it's probably the ".php" at the end of your URL; ".php" is a file extension - by having it there, the server will look for an actual file with that name, instead of allowing WP to handle the content the way it is supposed to.
