[resolved] Addon Domain or other CMS in subfolder conflict (2 posts)

    I love the security features of this plugins but in some how, I got some conflict with my addon domain that i had used other CMS. e.g. the 4Images, The administrative settings affected to load correctly.

    I have added the addon domain in my shared hosting at Hostgator. For your information the structure of the shared hosting http://support.hostgator.com/articles/cpanel/please-read-before-creating-an-addon-domain. My BFS .htaccess is on the root directory while my addon domain is on the subfolder.Then I got "Error or Loop Redirect" during the installation of any CMS even WP.

    Is there a way to solve the conflict or to disable in some of my subfolder where my subdomain installed?

    I appreciate your response.

    I have assisted other people with Hostgator add-on domains and there is nothing unusual about them ie no special requirements or settings that are different from the majority of major web hosts. So you issue is just the WordPress subfolder issue.
    So if you have a WordPress subfolder installation and WordPress is installed in a folder called /blog then you would just need to add /blog to the RewriteRule and RewriteBase of the htaccess file that is currently in the root of your WordPress installation folder.
    You must have a Custom Permalink Structure set up in order to use BPS.
    WordPress will automatically generate the correct .htaccess code for your website when you update your permalinks. That way there is no guesswork at the correct RewriteRule and RewriteBase for your WordPress installation.
    FYI - BPS does not currently work for websites hosted on an IIS server.
