Change Permalink Settings on WordPress 404 Error

Today I wanted to change the default permalink settings in wordpress to the smarter custom structure “/%category%/%postname%”. Unfortunately after that i got a page error 404.

Luckily it is not difficult to fix that problem. You just need to change the permissions of the .htaccess file to (chmod) 666 in the home directory of your wordpress. Then apply the settings again and change back the permissions of the file to 644.

Unfortunately all the previous links from the search engine or other webpages will not work anymore. After doing some search on the net I found a useful plugin to prevent that it is called “Dean’s PermaLink Migration”. You just need to install it and set the old permalink settings to “/%post_id%/” if it was set to default in that plugin. Otherwise you need to change it accordingly.

Create a user with Windows PowerShell

Windows PowerShell is a new feature which comes with Windows 2008 server. It need to have the .Net Framework installed and can also be installed on Windows 2003 Server, Windows XP-Vista.

Create a textfile “NewUser.ps1” with following content:
$objOU=[ADSI]LDAP://OU=Users,DC=test,DC=com

$objUser = $objOU.Create("user", "CN=Test1 User")
$objUser.Put("sAMAccountName", "Test1.User")
$objUser.SetInfo()

$objUser = $objOU.Create("user", "CN=Test2 User")
$objUser.Put("sAMAccountName", "Test2.User")
$objUser.SetInfo()

Important: To run this scripts in PowerShell you need to first active it:
set-executionpolicy remotesigned

Go into the directory where the script is located and run it like this:
./NewUser.ps1

Remote Desktop Users can’t login on Windows server 2008

I gave users permissions to login to the Server but it still didn’t work. After trying out for a while I found out the solution.

Login to the Server as Admin:
1. gpedit.msc (Local Group Policy)
2.  Computer Configuration/Security Settings/Local Policies/User Rights Assignment
3. Allow log on trough Terminal Serives you need to add your group or users

Warning: This should normally not be done and could be a security risk!
