check if '.htaccess' file in Q2A's root exist. if it exist then it might be because of your hosting's configuration that you cant use this permalinks.
Thanks for the reply towhid.

the .htaccess file DOES exist in the Q2A folder (note : Q2A is installed in a sub-directory)

I tried things given on this forum like uncommenting the RewriteBase
#RewriteBase /sub-directory
But it did not help

IS THERE A DEFAULT FALLBACK OPTION, which does not use any
"htaccess-like" techinques ?

Is there a way to CONFIRM that it is a problem from the hosting side ?
like a small test or something ?

Is there a way to configure that WITHOUT GOING TO ADMIN PANEL, like updating the values in the database directly ?

Its very annoying that I get banned by the server every time I access the admin panel :(
But for this the site in general is working though and q2a is a nice piece of s/w!
set url structure to last option.
