Do changes in your permalinks

Go to settings = permalinks and click on the plane and save leave every other thing as it is.

Saved changes now you’ll see if you refresh the home page you see that all pages are working.

But the Slug will be the page ID or post id which is not looking very good or even not good for SEO.

When yo do that it’s working now but if you look at the Slug.

You will see that it have a page ID ***number.

But the page is working fine so we need to change this URL back to your old permalink whatever you selected before this error came.

Go to dashboard setting = permalink and Change the permalink which is suitable to you. I changed from plane to Day and name or you can set it to post name both are fine.

But Day and name are better for post the pages will automatically use the post name for Day and name also ok.

Click on the Save changes button and come to the home page again.

You will see that all the links are now normal again and every link is using the Slug all pages use the slug. Everything is using the Slug if you click on any of the pages in the menu you will see that it’s now redirecting to the Slug and it’s opening normally.


The reason was that the .htaccess file was missing but when you change the permalink from plane to day and name again it will create automatically in the .htaccess file in your root folder.

You can see that your root folder so that was the main problem for this error and now solve please.
