404 Error on "Updated blogs" post after installation (6 posts)

    I'm sure this is user error as I'm new and have a complex setup.

    My main page works fine. The "Hello World" post works fine and comes up as "http://localhost.localdomain/wpmu/blog/hello-world/".

    However, the Updated Blogs page "my_blog_title" links to the directory "/wpmu/core" which is where I have the WPMU core files. Header, footer and sidebar show up but body has "Error 404 - Not Found".

    Everything in settings is pointing to /wpmu/core, but either that's wrong or I've got something wrong in .htaccess.

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    # Hey-ho let's go!
    RewriteEngine On
    # Base is the URL path of the home directory
    RewriteBase /
    # Base goes to WordPress
    RewriteRule ^$ /wpmu/core/index.php [L]
    # Skip real files and directories
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    # Otherwise send it to WordPress
    RewriteRule .* /wpmu/core/index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    <Files async-upload.php>
    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off

    BTW, here's my configuration
    Windows XP, XAMPP, mod_rewite on, PHP5

    File StructureSetup to ease SVNing wordpress
    /wp-content (is a SVN export from the core directory)
    wp-config.php (moved from core)
    .htaccess (moved from core)

    Any help is appreciated. I know I'm close.

    Oh yeah, Happy Holidaze!!

    Why did you edit your .htaccess file?

    If you've installed in a subdirectory (/wmpu) then your rewrite base should be /wmpu and not / . But really if you can you should install in the root of your website. Also not sure how well subdirectory install works with WPMU parked in a subdirectory itself.

    and what is:

    # Base goes to WordPress
    RewriteRule ^$ /wpmu/core/index.php [L]

    Doing in there?

    More info. BTW, running a single (main) blog.

    In the blog detail page of the admin panel, blog path, site url and home url are all set to localdomain/wpmu/core/.

    That is the same setting in the wp_1_options and wp_blogs table. However if I change the db tables and the setting above to "wpmu/", for some reason I get the same fatal error saying it's still looking for "/wpmu/core" in the wp_blogs table.

    Thanks for the response. I'm trying to implement from the codex.

    Good question about subdirectory install, but I only want 1 blog anyway. I'm using MU so I can use Buddypress.

    Found my answer. Of course, Andrea gave it awhile ago. Just didn't use right search terms the first time. Hope it helps someone else.
