[resolved] I edited my htaccess but wordpress still can't write to it (6 posts)

    I added the code to my htaccess in /public_html/:
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /blog2/
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /blog2/index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    But when I click on update permalink structure button at http://blog2.mindreality.com/wp-admin/options-permalink.php, it still says that my htaccess isn't writable. It is configured to 666.

    You say it's in /public_html/ but where is WP looking for it?

    my blog is in the public_html/blog2/ folder. But wordpress would use the htaccess in the public_html

    ... try putting it in the same directory as WP. WP won't "use" it from anywhere else. Apache will. And that won't necessarily get you the same results.

    I've done that, and it still doesn't work.

    Do you get an error message - or what happens?
