Support » Fixing WordPress » htaccess problem I think?

  • I have WordPress installed and working just fine.

    The problem lies that whenever I try to install a different PHP script like PHPlist or Machforms, when I try to go to any of the .php file, I get redirected back to the WordPress site and an error that the file could not be found.

    This is my htaccess file:

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

    No matter what I do, it seems to revert back to the main site. I can list other directories on the server that have html or images, but I can’t get anything with PHP inside to be found.

    Any help?

  • Here is my problem..

    Using the domain jeepers.com as an example, I have WordPress install at the root.

    My .htaccess file is this:

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

    Now let’s say I have installed PHPlist in public_html/lists and I try to go to jeepers.com/lists I get redirected to my WordPress installation and given a 404 error.

    How do I get around this?

    Hopefully someone has an answer on this because I am about to lose my mind 🙂

    No one?

    I’ve installed lots of WP installations in a subdomain like you mention – at jeepers.com/lists without a hitch. I would clear the re-write rules by going to the permalinks tab in your WP dashboard, saving the default rules, and then saving your custom urls again. That will flush them. You shouldn’t have a problem installing anything else in any subdomain.

    If you’ve written the htaccess rules by hand, I’m afraid I’m not knowledgeable enough to help with that.
