The way to fix the problem when Upgrade phpBB 3.1.1

It is so fast, phpBB 3.1.1 released.

I did meet the problem when I tried to upgrade my phpBB 3.0.12 to 3.1.0 or 3.1.1. Same problem here.

One is mentioned in the previous post.

I installed a fresh WordPress on a brand new VPS. No matter how I change the settings of permalinks, it is always giving me 404 error for all pages except Homepage.
Later I google it and find the solution from the official site.

* Apache web server with the mod_rewrite module installed
* In WordPress’s home directory,

o An .htaccess file (if this file is missing, WordPress will try to create it when you activate “pretty” permalinks)
o If you want WordPress to update the .htaccess file automatically, WordPress will need write access to the file.

For my situation, it is because of options of Apache.
I edited the httpd.conf and added following options.
