[resolved] install inside another wp installation - links going to "parent" install (2 posts)

    I have one wp install in my public_html folder. I've added a second install to a subfolder of public_html (/w). The admin and home page work fine but any link I click on in the second install simply goes to the home page of the root install. The url is correct in the browser but the page loaded is always the home page of the "parent" install.

    Here's a link in case this doesn't make any sense. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    parent install:

    Figured it out. The child install had no .htaccess file of its own and was using post name permalink settings so it was looking to the .htaccess file of the parent install. I gave it its own .htaccess file and it works fine.
