[resolved] .htaccess and SMF not working (4 posts)

    Hello,

    I got a little or let say a big problem. I installed wordpress in /public_html/ and my SMF forum in /public_html/brwforum/ now when I want to access the admin area of my forum I get the frontpage. But when I rename the /public_html/.htaccess to /public_html/.htaccessSTOP so it stopped working I can access my forum admin section. Is there a way to edit the .htaccess so that it doesn't control the brwforum directory?

    Does SMF stand for Simple Machines Forum?

    Since whatever Forum app you are using is a 3rd party app outside of WordPress then you can do any one of these 3rd party app options listed here >>> http://www.ait-pro.com/aitpro-blog/2252/bulletproof-security-plugin-support/checking-plugin-compatibility-with-bps-plugin-testing-to-do-list/#Custom-PHP-Applications-Outside-WordPress

    Did you apply one of the 3rd party app solutions? What is the status of the issue/problem. Thanks.

    Sorry couldn't test it earlier. But I created a .htaccess with RewriteEngine Off in it in the directory of my SMF (Simple Machines Forum) and the problem is gone.

    Thank you!!
