Fixing WordPress “404 Object Not Found” Errors on a Mac OS X Local Server Environment


Installing WordPress on a local server environment is fairly straight forward. There are numerous guides to be found on the Internet that’ll walk you through each step.

However, if your local server environment is running on a Mac, the local Apache server may have some difficulty serving WordPress posts and pages resulting in Error 404 Object not found! errors. These errors can often be attributed to the use of custom or so-called pretty permalinks.


Possible Cause of WordPress Jetpack Plugin Pagination Error


Back in July 2011 I noticed a problem with the Jetpack plugin and page navigation. In short, with the Jetpack plugin activated page navigation worked only if I was logged-in as admin. When logged-out page urls were being incorrectly re-written and causing 404 Not Found errors.

Now, some 9 months after having first raised the issue over at the forums member Josh Eaton seems to have found a possible cause.


Apache Brush for the SyntaxHighlighter Evolved WordPress Plugin


Having recently switched from SyntaxHighlighter MT to the SyntaxHighlighter Evolved plugin I was unable to get my custom Apache brush I use for .htaccess and *.conf files to work.

While searching for an answer I happened upon a better although seemingly unfinished version of an Apache brush, but still couldn’t get it work. A little further digging and I learnt that I needed to write a plugin to use a custom brush with SyntaxHighlighter Evolved.
