PHPbb3 not working with Wordpress

(1/2) > >>

Harry:
Hi,

I have recently installed phpbb3 in my directory called "forum" with phpbb-seo mod. In the root directory, I have wordpress installed.

Now, as per seo Mod, I have added the required code in the .htaccess file but when I try to access any forum, it is giving me 404 error page of wordpress. Below is the code I have in .htaccess file:


--- Code: ---IndexIgnore .htaccess */.??* *~ *# */HEADER* */README* */_vti*

<Limit GET POST>
order deny,allow
deny from all
allow from all
</Limit>
<Limit PUT DELETE>
order deny,allow
deny from all
</Limit>

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
</IfModule>

# END WordPress

    # You may need to un-comment the following lines
    # Options +FollowSymlinks
    # To make sure that rewritten dir or file (/|.html) will not load dir.php in case it exist
    # Options -MultiViews
    # REMEBER YOU ONLY NEED TO STARD MOD REWRITE ONCE

I have not made any changes in the code. I have just copied it from ACP. I have double checked all the modification in files that are required for phpbb-seo Mod and all are ok. Now sure what I am doing wrong. Any help to fix this would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Harry

Replace your .htaccess rule with following code:

--- Code: ---    IndexIgnore .htaccess */.??* *~ *# */HEADER* */README* */_vti*

    <Limit GET POST>
    order deny,allow
    deny from all
    allow from all
    </Limit>
    <Limit PUT DELETE>
    order deny,allow
    deny from all
    </Limit>

If seems that you are facing the problem due to wordpress rewrite rule (specially RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d).
