dreamhost not writing htaccess (5 posts)

    I installed WP on Dreamhost such that the wp files are in a separate folder such that the blog url is mydomain.com while wp is at mydomain.com/wp

    as with initial installation, the initial blog url will be at mydomain.com/wp while wp will create the .htaccess file within /wp

    but when i change the blog url to just mydomain.com, wp can't create nor update the .htaccess found in / folder even with permission set at 666. i can edit by hand but well, wp is suppose to make life easy...

    anyone has a solution or similar problems?

    hey macmanx thankx, but changing both permission and editing vars.php still don't allow wp to autoupdate the htaccess file if the file is not in /wp directory.

    I eventually gave up trying to persuade that to work, and kept the blog in a folder and redirect from the root to that folder...

    interesting thing was that another project i was working on, not on dreamhost, was able to do what i wanted, ie. htaccess at the root, while wp in a sub-folder, and the file is updated whenever any options are changed in wp-admin.
