WordPress Permalink not Working

WordPress Permalink not working enenn through you enabled it from wordpress admin section >> Settings >> Permalinks.

On investigating for a long time I found that wordpress requires a rewrite  rules to be enabled in .htaccess file for Permalinks to work correctly.

Create .htaccess file in the installation directory of wordpress and add following rewrite rules.

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

Save exit file and now Permalinks should work fine.
