If your WordPress website’s permalinks are incorrect, your web pages will display the error message “404 page not found.”
You can reset the permalinks in WordPress by following the instructions below:
Making a backup of your website is the first thing you should do when troubleshooting it so that it can be restored if something goes wrong.
- Log in to your WordPress account.
- Select Permalinks under Settings.
- Change the word “Plain” in the permalink structure.
- Select “Save Changes.”
The permalinks that you chose should now appear in the URL of your website’s pages.
