conflict between WordPress and PHPMyAdmin (1 post)

    Hello, I've recently encountered a problem where the entire site would crash if I attempted to log in to PhpMyAdmin. I managed to fix the problem and would like to post what I found out here.

    First, I'm using v2.2.2 and had no problems with 2.2.1. The root URL of my site is configured as the blog directory and I'm using standard year/month/day/post permalinks with a static front page.

    I did a little digging and found that the permalinks were causing the problem. To fix the problem I added this line to the .htaccess file:

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-l

    This filters out symlinks in addition to files and directories.

    If this is already known but not used due to side effects, please let me know.
