.htaccess issue with my wordpress blog, need a help plz.


Active member
From my wordpress Permalink Settings, I want to use "Post name". To use it, I need to copy some lines at my .htaccess.

The problem is, when I copy that part of lines at my .htaccess file, I got error to visit my forum.

My forum is in root directory, and my wp blog is in "root/db". Here is my recent .htaccess file without any error.

#    Mod_security can interfere with uploading of content such as attachments. If you
#    cannot attach files, remove the "#" from the lines below.
#<IfModule mod_security.c>
#    SecFilterEngine Off
#    SecFilterScanPOST Off
ErrorDocument 401 default
ErrorDocument 403 default
ErrorDocument 404 default
ErrorDocument 500 default
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    #    If you are having problems with the rewrite rules, remove the "#" from the
    #    line that begins "RewriteBase" below. You will also have to change the path
    #    of the rewrite to reflect the path to your XenForo installation.
    #RewriteBase /xenforo
    #    This line may be needed to enable WebDAV editing with PHP as a CGI.
    #RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization}]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -l [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^.*$ - [NC,L]
    RewriteRule ^(data/|js/|styles/|install/|favicon\.ico|crossdomain\.xml|robots\.txt) - [NC,L]
    RewriteRule ^.*$ index.php [NC,L]
And here is the code I need to include,

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /db/
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /db/index.php [L]
I just add this code "as it is" down bellow my original .htaccess, with no luck.
So, what will be my total code then?

Where is XenForo installed? And where is Wordpress installed? Are they in the same or different directories.

In that case you should be able to use XenForo's default .htaccess file in public_html and then Wordpress can have its own .htaccess file in db.
