I want to convert my site from Drupal to WordPress. I installed WordPress in a subdirectory so I can tweak it until I'm ready to delete drupal and move it to the root folder. After installing I cannot access the WP index in the subdirectory. I get this in firefox:
"The page isn't redirecting properly
Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.
* This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."
I have cleared my browser and still get the same error. It must have some conflict with drupal. The drupal part of the site is still working ok.
When I try to load my WP admin login url in the subdirectory it loads ok, but as soon as I submit my username and password, it redirects me to the login again.
Any clues? Thanks
UPDATE: I contacted my host and the problem was WP was not creating an .htaccess file when installing to a subdirectory. I tried installing WP a few times and it would never create an .htaccess file within the subdirectory. I'm using hostgator. I don't know if it was because there already was an .htaccess in root (from drupal) or something to do with my host.
