.htaccess issues (10 posts)

    Like all those other people with .htaccess issues, I've tried putting a .htaccess in my wp subfolder but am getting a 403 error. I've read through all the other .htaccess threads I can find through search and tried them but i keep getting a 403. I am sure my host has mod_rewrite; however, I think, but am not sure, my host has disabled virtual directory support. any ideas?

    To see if you have mod_rewrite:
    PHP Info
    * Paste this into a new Notepad / BBEdit file
    * <?php infophp(); ?>
    * Save as 'info.php'
    * Upload to server. Visit in your browser (www.example.com/info.php)
    * That will give you info about your php version and mod_rewrite.
    * It's a long page on info, so you will need to hunt it down.

    Is there any reason you left out
    RewriteBase /wptest/
    and instead put it into all the lines ?
    Did it work with what wp gave you originally ?

    Does the folder 'wptest' contain all the files and folders or did you install into different directories ?
    When it didn't work, what errors were thrown up ?
    Do you have anything else in the .htaccess ?

    Add this to the top of your generated .htaccess:
    Options +FollowSymLinks +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
    I bet you're using an ensim host... this problem took me weeks to sort through.

    It means that it works. LOL
    To be honest, I'm not entirely sure. Something about following virtual directories.
