WordPress Pretty Permalinks with Register365 hosting

Wordpress pretty permalinks

They don’t make it easy!

edit: 10/01/2016 Register365 have upgraded their service so using Zeus is no longer required.
It took me longer than I’d like to admit to get the permalinks on this site working. After numerous modifications of .htaccess files I finally realised the blatant mistake I was making, Register365 hosting does not support mod_rewrite because it does not run Apache.

It does however support Zeus and provides the code for rewriting permalinks on the Register365 knowledgebase. To get this working you must create a file called rewrite.script, copy in the following code (assuming your install is in the top web directory) and upload to your site

#Zeus webserver version of basic WordPress mod_rewrite rules  
map path into SCRATCH:path from %{URL}  
look for file at %{SCRATCH:path}  
if exists then goto END  
look for dir at %{SCRATCH:path}  
if exists then goto END  
##### FIX FOR LOGIN/FORGOTTEN PASSWORD/ADMIN ETC #####  
match URL into $ with ^/wp-.*$  
if matched then goto END  
##### FIX TO ALLOW SEARCH TO WORK #####  
match URL into $ with ^/(.*)  
set URL = /index.php/$1

Register365 have upgraded their hosting, so there is no need to use Zeus anymore.
