Now hosting server from Mac OS X 10.7 Server and from my user directory as it is easier to add files.

As with 10.6 by default permalinks in wordpress don’t work and the httpd.conf file needs to be edited as described here to allow override.

This can be done In 10.7 by editing the httpd.conf files found under:


and if hosting multiple sites from other directories under:


In these locations fine the appropriate httpd.conf file and edit to:

AllowOverride All

This can also be set using Server.app. In the Web services options select you particular website and click the edit setting button. Then select the check box ‘Allow all overrides’.
