Wordpress Permalink Problem

Video Summary:

I forgot to test the links after completing the basic installation and configuration of my new WordPress site.

When I did, I got a rude shock! 404 errors - or "Page Not Found" errors popping up everywhere!

I traced this problem back to some sort of issue with the Permalink structure I had set up for /%postname%/

For some (still) unexplained reason, Wordpress would NOT update the .htaccess file on my server. When I placed one with the correct information there, that then generated a server error.

Following up with my web hosting company revealed nothing, so I had NO alternative but to move the domain to a new hosting company where I knew things worked as they are supposed to!

I don't think it was a WordPress problem... rather some sort of server configuration issue which my old hosting provider couldn't be bothered investigating or fixing... oh well!
