Create an .htaccess file in your root directory ( e.g www.example.com/ )
vi .htaccess #(you may have to sudo or su)
Add the following lines in the file .htaccess file…
# Disable Directory Browsing Options All -Indexes # Secure access to .htaccess files <Files .htaccess> order allow,deny deny from all </Files>
Save the file and exit vi (:wq).
You may have to give full access rights to .htaccess!?
chmod 777 .htaccess #(you may have to sudo or su)
Open your favorite browser, go to your www.example.com/wp-admin section then choose
Settings -> Permalinks
and apply your custom structure…
( e.g /%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/ )
Remove the full access rights from .htaccess!
chmod 644 .htaccess #(you may have to sudo or su)
You are done! Enjoy your wordpress custom permalinks in your preffered language.
I have test it with greek, russian and arabic and worked as a charm!
