Enable mod_rewrite friendly URLs in wordpress

You want to enable permalinks to have nicely formatted urls instead of page_ids which is the standard option.

First set the permalinks to another format in the wordpress dashboard interface under Settings - Permalinks.

Then enable mod_rewrite like this:

sudo a2enmod rewrite

Then enable .htaccess to override the default rules.

sudo gedit /etc/apache2/sites-available/default

Change the line AllowOverride none to AllowOverride All somewhere around row 12-13.

Restart apache by issuing the following command:

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
