WP altering other site areas? (2 posts)

    Hi There,

    I am a new user to wordpress, and I seem to have an issue that I can't find addressed here in other topics. I have WordPress installed in a subdirectory on my host (for example: host/blog) I also have a shopping cart installed in a different subdirectory (for example host/cart). The problem I am having is that when WordPress is installed and running, if I try to access the admin panel for the shopping cart (host/cart/admin) it brings me to the wordpress page. I discovered fairly early on that this was due to the .htaccess file and its interaction with the site, however, when I remove the .htaccess file and disable it's use within wordpress, the links to the added pages in wordpress (links, archives, etc) no longer link to a specific page, and I can find nothing in the wordpress console that allows me to change them. Is there a way to either: a) configure the .htaccess file to stop it from redirecting other subdirectories, or b) not use .htaccess, forget the url_rewrites and simply change the links within wordpress to the pages that have been added?

    Thank you very much for any help you can provide.

    a) is the WP's htaccess at the root or in the WP directory?

    b) before deleting WP's htaccess (from the WP folder) re-set the permalinks to "deafult: admin > Options > Permalinks.
