Add wordpress to Ruby on Rails site – how?

    I have an existing site built on Ruby on Rails and wanted to add a wordpress blog to the site. I know it’s easy to do it on a subdomain, but I’d like the site to sit at /blog instead.

    There wasn’t an issue installing it. I was even able to reach the admin panel, but outside of that, the /blog redirects to my homepage every time.

    I saw a couple threads referring to this wordpress -ruby on rails integration issue, but no definite answers that a certain solution worked. I know that there has to be a way to implement these two popular platforms together.

    Here’s hoping I can get a solution!

    Thanks

    That sounds like your existing site is rewriting/redirecting all incoming urls. If you have an htaccess file in your root domain folder, try renaming it and see if that helps.

    Awesome. Thanks… I figured it could be something with redirect. Instead of changing the .htaccess filename, can I just unrestrict it from redirecting anything in that directory?

    Any other potential ideas as to what this could be?

    In theory, yes but that really depends upon what is actually in your root .htaccess file.
