Subdirectory problem

  • Greetings.

    My WordPress (2.0.5) files are currently located in mydomain.tld/blog/, and my WP settings are set so mydomain.tld/ is the root.

    My pages currently display as mydomain.tld/about, mydomain.tld/contact, which is good. All my posts reside in /blog/, e.g. mydomain.tld/blog/2006/12/30/moving-stuff/, which is also fine and dandy.

    The problem I’m having is that if I type mydomain.tld/blog/ in manually, I will get a 404 page, since it’s not the specified root, and I suspect that my articles are not being indexed on Google for that very reason – or at least indexed slower.

    Is there any way to have my /blog/ either redirect to /, or at least display a message asking the user to go to the root? I thought of creating a page called Blog, but I can already see a hell-on-earth reaction as a result of that + it would appear in my menu which would look rather odd.

    Thanks in advance.

    PS: Contents of my .htaccess’s:

    in mydomain.tld/:

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    in mydomain.tld/blog/:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /blog/
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /blog/index.php [L]

    I doubt that the .htaccess in /blog/ has any effect at all. Perhaps I should just remove it.
