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

In my server I have the following file structure:

www/
  index.html
  js/..
  css/..
  img/..
  index.html
  ...
  blog/
    .htaccess
    index.php
    wordpress/
      .htaccess
      wp-config.php
      ...

Basically, www/ with some static files and the blog/ directory where I keep the wordpress files (so that if I want to login I have to go to www.mysite.com/blog/wordpress/wp-admin.php)

I have no problem login in, I have no problem displaying the front page, but when I try to access one of the posts or categories I am redirected to www.mysite.com/index.php and get the following error message:

Not Found

The requested URL /index.php was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

I don't think it's an .htaccess problem, because both .htaccess files are there and I don't have any issues with permalinks while browsing the site locally... Any ideas on what could this be?

I suspect that it is an .htaccess issue. Please post the content of your .htaccess files. –  s_ha_dum May 8 '13 at 15:47

It sounds like you need to copy the file /blog/index.php to /index.php and modify a line in the new copy you create:

require('./wp-blog-header.php');

to

require('./wordpress/wp-blog-header.php');

Here is a complete guide to moving Wordpress into a separate folder: http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory

If you copy /blog/index.php to the server document root it could interfere with the static content in root. –  s_ha_dum May 8 '13 at 15:45
    
You might also check the Wordpress Address and Site Address configuration options which are under Settings > General. The Wordpress Address should point to the blog directory and the Site Address should point to the URL for the front page of your blog. Are you trying to set it up so that your blog is accessible from the root of your website or from /blog/ –  Ben Cole May 8 '13 at 15:53
