I'm trying to set up WordPress with a current site. I setup the files inside /blog with the index.php in the main directory. Enabled permalinks and changed the .htaccess file.
I changed index.php to blog.php (and updated the .htaccess) file as appropriate.
The problem is when I link to the blog: http://whatever/blog.php the home page is blank, doesn't show any of the posts.
However, http://whatever/2008/08/ works just fine and shows all of the posts from August...linking to a story from there works as well. If I turn off permalinks, the home page works.
Any suggestions? I can provide further information if needed. Thanks.
