Method 2: Edit in the .htaccess file

By default, the .htaccess file is hidden, so you need to show it up.

Next, open and edit the .htaccess file and add the code below. If the .htaccess file does not exist, create a new one.

Snippets for WordPress

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
# END WordPress

If you use WordPress Multisite, you can use the following code

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
# add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$ $1wp-admin/ [R=301,L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
RewriteRule ^ - [L]

Fix 404 not found error in WordPress on NGINX

If your VPS or Linux server is using NGINX as the webserver running your WordPress website, you are probably missing the rewrite path configuration for your NGINX website. To configure the rewrite for WordPress on NGINX, enter the following into the domain configuration file in NGINX on the server.

location /
	 try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$args;

And remember to restart NGINX with the command service nginx restart

Now check again to see if you still get the 404 error!
