WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have set up a static website with basic information pages such that all of the static pages fall into one level and in that directory there is directory "blog" which contains a Wordpress 3.5.1 install. This gives me the following directory structure:

  • index.php
  • blog.php
  • /blog
    • all of my Wordpress crap

I have recently been suffering from an issue that constantly re-directs me to my homepage when you try to navigate to a blog post but you are able to navigate to blog.php and it seems to be working correctly. I think something might be wrong with my .htaccess but I do not know enough about them to say. I have included both of my .htacess files below in the hopes that someone can see what is going on and help me to correct this problem.

root directory

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

# END WordPress

/blog/ directory

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /blog/
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /blog/index.php [L]
</IfModule>

# END WordPress

The website in question can be found at R2 Consultants Ltd.. Any help that you could provide would be very appreciated and if I have not provided enough information for you to be able to help me please just request what you need and I will get it for you ASAP. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Try updating the permalinks settings even if they seem correct. What's the purpose of blog.php? –  Felipe Alameda A May 27 '13 at 8:02
    
@faa I just updated them to no avail. The blog.php is essentially the front page for the blog that lists out the 10 most recent articles that are on the blog. –  BadR0b1t May 27 '13 at 8:22
    
What's 'no avail', the Default setting? If so, the rule-set in the .htaccess file has been deleted. Is it? –  Felipe Alameda A May 27 '13 at 8:33
    
You are most likely irritating Wordpress as it has not been designed for such a use. Please consult Codex how you install Wordpress commonly. Also this smells more like a support question than a concrete programming question. I suggest you contact the vendor for your support options. –  hakre May 27 '13 at 8:37
    
I recently changed the setting WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL) to the same thing. When I was looking through the codex it says I can set them to have it set up like this: WordPress Address (URL): www.robroscoe.ca/blog Site Address (URL) : www.robroscoe.ca But when I do this the site breaks :\ –  BadR0b1t May 27 '13 at 8:41
