Mod_rewrite removing ".php" extension causing installation problem (4 posts)

    Hi there,

    I'm trying to install WordPress for our businesses blog. I'd like to install it at http://www.summeraway.com/blog, but because I'm removing all ".php" extensions with mod_rewrite, I can't get WordPress to install properly.

    I thought about temporarily removing the mod_rewrite clause until I get it installed, but I'm wondering if WordPress will work at all with this setup?

    I'm guessing other people must have asked a similar question so was hoping there was a solution out there?

    Thanks :)

  2. but because I'm removing all ".php" extensions with mod_rewrite

    WordPress should take care of that for itself... What htaccess code are you using to do this?

    I've set mod_rewrite to remove the ".php" extension for use only on http://www.summeraway.com ... but because the blog is trying to install at http://www.summeraway.com/blog/ the mod_rewrite commands are automatically carrying across to the blog.

    Do you think if I disable the mod_rewrite code until I get the blog installed properly I'll be able to login and start posting articles?


  4. Depends on HOW you set the mod_rewrite :) The couple ways I've seen shouldn't conflict, but it's a WAG since I'm shooting blind.

    Can you share your code?

    If not, give it a shot and we'll see!
