wordpress localhost subpages not working

I’ve been banging my head against the wall because a local install of a wordpress I’m developing would for some reason not let me go to any wordpress subpages.

  I’m using Sublime and iTerm. I like iTerm a bunch, I like Sublime a bunch, but I’m thinking about keystroke conservation… For now I’m going to install the Terminal package in Sublime so I can launch iTerm from a keystroke instead of command tabbing all the time.
