But I change wordpress permalinks for got  Settings / Permalinks and then select sample post. But I can’t fix this error message from wordpress on local server.

Configure permalinks on your local server for wordpress.

[email protected]:~#  vi /etc/apache2/sites-available/wp.conf

Insert below all lines into wp.conf file.

<Directory /var/www/html/>
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride All
Require all granted

[email protected]:~# a2ensite wp.conf
[email protected]:~# service apache2 reload
