I have MAMP configured in my machine and I've been using it to run multiple Wordpress installs with no issue until this new site where the Wordpress install is in a subdirectory.

The site is installed under htdocs and it has the following structure: /mylocalpath/htdocs/www.mysite.com/Web Applicatin/WordpressInstallCoreFiles

For some reason this keeps returning a 404. I followed the steps for "Wordpress in Subdirectory" but still no luck.

I do have the hosts file set up correctly for the local domain.

Any tips or ideas on how to get my site running on the subdirectory? Anything I can do in Apache to configure this correctly?

  • Have you tried without the space in the path?

Turns out this was an issue with my current Apache install. After uninstalling an reinstalling the latest version of Apache, everything worked as expected.
