Permalink Problem - 2nd WP Install in Sub Directory of 1st. (3 posts)

    Based on a generally dysfunctional development process, I've ended up creating a 2nd wordpress blog in a subdirectory of a first. So, basically I have 1 WP install at http://mysite.com/ and another at http://mysite.com/sub/.

    The 2nd install in the sub directory is running on its own database, and everything seems to be working - except for pretty permalinks on the install in the sub directory.

    I assume this is a .htaccess issue, but can't get much beyond that. If I enable pretty permalinks on the 2nd install, I simply get 404 error pages from the root install.

    My original WP .htaccess looked like this:

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

    And when I enable pretty permalinks in the 2nd sub directory, it wants me to add this to my .htaccess:

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /contractor/
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /sub/index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    I tried just adding this code below the other, but that didn't seem to do anything - and now I've more than exhausted my knowledge of .htaccess files.

    Any suggestions?

    I hate to be a selfish bumper, but I still haven't been able to figure this one out.

    Any suggestions?
