I have a question about having two blogs at the same host simultaneously. Here is my scenario: The first blog is hosted in the root directory http://mathosproject.com/, and the second is hosted in a sub directory, http://blog.mathosproject.com/, which is linked to mathosproject.com/blog/.

I have tried to manipulate the web.config file of the root, by making it excluding the directory blog as following:

<configuration>
<system.webServer>
<rewrite>
<rules>
<rule name="wordpress8" patternSyntax="Wildcard">
<match url="^(blog|sample-page)*" ignoreCase="true" />
<conditions>
</conditions>
<action type="Rewrite" url="blog/index.php" />
</rule>

<rule name="wordpress" patternSyntax="Wildcard">
<match url="*" ignoreCase="false" />
<conditions>
</conditions>
<action type="Rewrite" url="index.php" />

</rule>
</rules>
</rewrite>
</system.webServer>
</configuration>


This actually helped me to be able to view the second blog, in blog, but as I processed to the sample-page, I was redirected to the first blog.

My question is, is there a way I can configure the web.config, so that it excludes a folder entirely?

Is this a multisite installation? –  kaiser Nov 3 '12 at 20:09
The wordpress installation in the root is not, but the one inside the root folder, blog, is a multisite installation –  Artem Nov 3 '12 at 20:35
Multi-site cannot (yet) live in a sub directory. –  toscho Nov 3 '12 at 22:34
So, there are no ways of making web.config ignore a directory completely? –  Artem Nov 4 '12 at 10:41
