    Hello everyone,

    I have a WP install using a VPS and seem to been having some issues on how to fix a 404 error page I seem to get if I change the permalinks in WP admin. To anything other than the defaults.

    Everything I have been researching up to know suggest the issue relies in fixing or modifying .htaccess to include the following directives:

    # BEGIN WordPress

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>

    RewriteEngine On

    RewriteBase /

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]


    # END WordPress

    The question I have is will this change within .htaccess as it involves re-starting my server will it have any effect on the site I have installed. Meaning will data be lost or over written in the DB or Server?
