    htaccess etc.

    Hi

    Having a problem with htaccess. I have followed the same procedure i did for CP to put WP as a sub directory and Clipper as the main directory.

    My htaccess files is this:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    # END WordPress


    I have also changed the 'Settings' 'General' site address url so that it doesn't have /wordpress on the end.

    Am i missing something else somewhere? I know its been a while since i set my CP theme up.

    Hi mazza

    Not really a Clipper thing...
    Are you using a subdomain? Or just a sub folder? Same for both sites? What's in the other htaccess file? In the settings, what are the WordPress and Site URLs?

    Hi dubya,

    lol, makes me wonder sometimes!!!

    All i am trying to achieve is a root install as per this link http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_Wo..._Own_Directory

    I have done this a few times before and have never had any problems. I have followed it to the letter again and again. Sometimes i have the pages working and sometimes i don't!! But never have the home page running unless i stick the 'wordpress' back on the end of the general settings site url.

    I know i must be doing something wrong but don't know where????!!!

    FYI: I have clipper in a sub directory using a sudomain. I changed the Site URL to http://mydomain.com/foldername/ and changed one line in the htaccess:
    Code:
    RewriteBase /foldername/
    and it seems to be working fine. I think that was what you wanted to know?

    Sorry, You are doing something totally different than I thought.

    This really is doing my little brain cell in !!!!

    Thanks dubya i've just tried what you have suggested and to no avail.

    Now i am just getting http:500 error on all pages!!!

    In the setting site url:

    WordPress Address (URL) http://(mydomain)/wordpress

    Site Address (URL) http://(mydomainname)

    If i try running the site this way it throws the 500 error up and if you stick /wordpress back on the site url it works fine!!!

    There has to be something simple to this??? Surely !!!!!

    I would take a 5 minute break, then come back and start the process over again following the instructions at the link you provided. I bet you missed or messed one of the file edits.
