    Hello :)

    Could you elaborate on what aspect of Mod_Rewrite is not working? For instance, what rules have you added, and what are you expecting the rules to do?

    Thank you.

    It's highly discouraged to use 0666 permissions on a file. I recommend consulting with a developer or with the WordPress community to find alternatives to this practice, or to help understand why the script is requiring those permissions.

    Thank you.

    File permissions on .htaccess files used by your website should be 0644.

    Thank you.
