Revenge of the permalink errors.  A had a similar problem happen when I upgraded to 2.7.1, which I posted about here.

Downgrading to WordPress2.7.1 was really simple:

  • Download the previous version.
  • Drag the files into your WordPress installation directory.
  • Log-in into the admin menu.
  • WordPress will request to automatically update your database. Agree to the update.
  • Everything should be back to the way it was. It was for me.

Readers, keep me posted on when this major bug gets resolved. Thanks.

    Have you read my other post?

    Make sure that LoadModule rewrite_module modules/ is enabled in Apache setting file httpd.conf (that was what was wrong with my server).
