  1. Hey, this is Ryan @ DigitalOcean. Sorry you’re having trouble. I read over your post and have a couple suggestions:

    1.) make sure all your web files are owned by the user apache runs as. This can be done with (assuming ubuntu 14.04 & apache):

    chown -Rf www-data:www-data /var/www/

    2.) Ensure that rewrites are properly enabled for your site and apache has appropriate permissions.

    a2enmod rewrite

    and update your virtualhost configuraiton to ensure that the directory where your wordpress install is located has AllowOverride All instead of AllowOverride None

    Then restart apache with

    service apache2 restart

    These two changes should allow wordpress to write the .htaccess file and for the permalinks setup you have to work correctly.

    If you continue to run into problems please open a support ticket with us or post a question in the community section of our site. We’re always happy to help!
