I'm trying to merge an old wordpress blog with a new wordpress site. Effectively all I want is to bring across the posts and link off to them from a link in the navigation called "blog".... simple enough. So I've already exported the posts from the old blog and imported them to the new site via the wordpress importer. That is working and I can see them in my admin panel.
The problem I'm having is I've created a page "blog" but when I attempt to go to this page I get the following error:
The requested URL /blog/ was not found on this server.
This makes no sense to me as my permalinks are setup as follows:
and every other page on the site works perfectly. No 404s... I've checked my
.htaccess file but nothing is jumping out. If I change the name of the page to blog123 then I can go to /blog123 and it works fine.
Can anyone point me into the right direction of what might be happening and how I can go about resolving it?
Note: /blog is not a subdirectory. The wordpress installation sits in the root. /blog is the name of the page ( I am using custom permalinks).
