[resolved] url and index.php problem - help needed (2 posts)

    I have installed wordpress in a subdirectory -
    http://www.mysite.com/wp

    I have set both urls in the admin option to :

    wp url : http://www.mysite.com/wp <--- no slash etc.
    blog url : http://www.mysite.com/wp

    The problem I have is wordpress is installed to co-exist with another php system called phpfox. The root folder of http://www.mysite.com has the php-fox index.php file there ...

    Therefore, moving the wp index.php file up to the root is a problem for me. Is there a way I can leave the wp index.php in the subdirectory??? or can I rename it to another name???

    At the moment I cannot access the wp admin or blog url unless I type full paths i.e.

    http://www.mysite.com/wp/wp-admin/index.php for the admin
    http://www.mysite.com/wp/index.php for the blog url

    Any help with this would be highly appreciated asap.

    You have some decisions to make about how you want to combine these two applications - i.e. which is going to be the front page of your web site.

    Based on your description - it sounds as if Phpfox has an .htaccess file that is controlling how it works and that is keeping you from getting to WordPress without designating the index.php

    You can leave the blog in the WP folder - and hopefully create a link within Phpfox navigation that will take a site visitor to your blog.
