I am trying to install the latest version (2.01) to mysite/blog and it succeeds to install fine, with no errors. When I try to login to the administrator, I get a 404 error because it is trying to access file mysite/wp-admin/profile.php instead of mysite/blog/wp-admin/profile.php. When I try to go back to the blog page it is a blank screen.
I tried installing to the root and everything works fine. I tried several times to install to a subdirectory, running the install from another machine and from the same machine via localhost. Both installs finish correctly, but the same result, the subdirectory is missing from the path. If I add it to the url, it just displays a blank screen.
I am installing on windows with apache, php and mysql. I tried with and without mod_rewrite. Anyone know the trick to getting this to install properly in a subdirectory?
