Pretty URLs Not Working

#1
I have my forum installed inside a WordPress install and it's working perfectly except for the SEO-friendly URLs, pretty URLs or whatever they're called. Whenever I turn them on, it loads on the WordPress site and gives me 404 errors. When I turn them off and leave it /index.php?... it works fine.

WordPress: www.aquaticforums.net
Xenforo: www.aquaticforums.net/forums

Is this a downside of using both WordPress and Xenforo in the same parent folder on my server?

It should be using the XenForo .htaccess. There's a .htaccess in the folder WordPress is in and there's another one in /forums too. They're on different databases too.

I'm not sure what I have in my .htaccess file as I've never looked at one in my life. I just know that it's there.

So your Xenforo install is inside a folder called /forums, and the WordPress install is in the root directory of the domain?

Is mod_rewrite enabled?

If you log into your ACP on the forum, go to URL: admin.php?tools/phpinfo

In there, search for mod_rewrite to see if it's there in the loaded modules area.

I looked and I don't think it's there, but I'm not sure. So I saved the PHP info as a PDF so you can take a second look. Thanks for your help!

PDF is attached below:

I should have paid more attention... It works now. Thanks for your help!
