[resolved] s2member in wordpress install in subfolder of joomla installation (2 posts)

    Hi there,

    I'm running s2member free edition and also BPS security

    I've found all the advice saying I need to insert:

    # S2Member protected URL rewrite / redirect bypass
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/example-URI-path/example-registration-page/ [NC]
    RewriteRule . - [S=13]

    into my .htaccess file.

    I've done that but run into a new problem.

    My WordPress is in a subfolder of an old Joomla installation.
    This hasn't caused any problems, as the WordPress installation is in a new database and the config files, wordpress settings are all fine. No problems accessing any posts, pages etc.

    But for some reason, when I try and access a restricted page, it throws a 404, but not from WordPress, but a generic:


    You don't have permission to access xxxxxxx on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."

    Originally it was showing the Joomla 404 error until I edited the Joomla .htaccess file to ignore the WordPress subfolder.

    Any ideas what's going on?

    s2member is somehow triggering something from the root domain where Joomla is installed!

    Just to clarify, the following link:

    changes to:

    in the address bar...
