WordPress in subdirectory htaccess

wordpress in subdirectory htaccess

If the WordPress is installed in /wordpress subfolder then the blog can be accessed www.example.com/wordpress but if you want the blog to be default page servered by the web-server.. there are many ways to do this.. but involves modification to many files and coping index.php, wp-config.php etc.

A simple solution is to edit “.htaccess” in the root folder (if it does not exist use text editor to  create the file ) note the ‘.’ in file name

Edit 27 Sep 2014: “Pretty permalinks not working for sub-directory WordPress” with the above .htaccess

Solution: we require two .htaccess files

1. in the root .htaccess

2. in the subdirectory where the wordpress is installed, in my case “wordpress”: Note the virtual host is not enabled

if the Virtual Host is enabled then the .htaccess file has to as follows (the root .htaccess file is not required when virtual host is enabled)

Pls note: with virtual host enabled, the wp-admin may not work: the issues will be in the general setting of the WordPress
