Support » Fixing WordPress » htaccess problems

  • I’ve been running WordPress for a while, but a new installation on a new server that I don’t have full access to (webmasters extremely cagey) is causing me problems.

    The standard wordpress htaccess file (

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /3am/
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /3am/index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    ) forbids all access to the wordpress directory. If I remove the htaccess file – or delete its contents and make it non-writeable – I can access all the files, but I can’t write posts (although they are stored in the DB and appear in the Dashboard etc.)

    Anyone? All help gratefully received.

  • Yeah. Get yourself a new decent host. Your .htaccess looks fine assuming your install is in a subfolder named “3am”….

    2nd that, get a decent host. Remember they work for you, not the other way around. If they don’t provide the features you need there are many more who will.

    I’ve been trying to rewrite my htaccess to make sure that domain.com forward to http://www.domain.com for all the pages on my site, in order to avoid the duplicate content penalty in google. This is my code:

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    #
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.thetshirtblog\.com
    RewriteRule (.*) http://www.thetshirtblog.com/$1 [R=301,L]
    </IfModule>

    Unfortunately this doens’t really work as desired, and it forwards almost everything to domain.com/index.php. Any help?

    shiznaught, maybe start a new thread? Your problem isn’t germane to the OP’s situation.

    Unfortunately, this is just design work I’m doing for someone else – they’re not my host, so can’t change. Can anyone tell me why the WP rewrite rules cut access to this directory?
