mod_rewrite.c is listed in the installed modules in Apache. I'm running
multiple Joomla sites that use it no prob.
If I type the specific permlink URL based on my custom structure ( which
is /%postname%/ ) the permlink works fine.
If I just type the primary domain name of the site...it doesn't work...
blank page, forever spinning icon...no 404s...just never loads.
I set the site as you have it set (custom structure, category base, and
tag base) and it has the same issue described above.

double check Permalink Setting is: WordPress --> Settings --> Permalinks
Custom Structure: /%category%/%postname%/
Category Base: cat
Tag Base: tag
I'm not sure if that was specific to the website I'm working with or not
but maybe that will point you in the right direction.

those who use it.
I have a site (hosted in a LAMP environment) that does not have
permlinks enabled and no .htaccess file.
When I enable permlinks Wordpress creates the .htaccess file.
I can then browse to http://website/friendly-name if I type the specific
However, if I just type the base URL http://website I get a bank browser
page and the forever spinning icon indicating the page is loading...but
never does. I can then disable permlinks and the site works fine again.
I have other sites (not wordpress) hosted on the same server using
search engine friendly URLs so mod_rewrite is for sure enabled on the
Any clue as to why permlinks work when tying the URL directly but then
the base URL for the site doesn't load?
