The MU forums have moved to

Idea of joining WPMU with Joomla (7 posts)

    I though this:

    If i putt WPMU in root.
    Then i putt Joomla in root/folder.

    Then I make WPMU's index.php include Joomla's index.php.

    Could this work?

    What I want is this:
    When people type in or - to get to the main site which is a Joomla install. And I want all WPMU users to get instead of like they do now.

    Is this possible? How?

    Modify your wpmu .htaccess file to redirect to your joomla site by default. Try the following.

    You won't be able to open wpmu home page. You will have to show the rss feed of wpmu in joomla site.

    Options +FollowSymLinks

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /

    RewriteCond %{ENV:REDIRECT_STATUS} ^$
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www\.)?yoursite\.com(/)?$ [NC]
    RewriteRule ^$ /joomlafolder/ [L]

    #uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/$ index.php [L]
    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/(.*) wp-content/blogs.php?file=$2 [L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule . - [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-.*) $2 [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ $2 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    I was really hoping this would do the trick. But it wont work for me.

    I changed these two:
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www\.)?yoursite\.com(/)?$ [NC]
    RewriteRule ^$ /joomlafolder/ [L]

    But.. no desired result. Any other trick up the sleve?

    It worked! I just had to enable .htaccess and wait a few hours for the webserver the site is hosted at to update!

    Thanks TechWorker!!! TechWorker for President!!

    My Server doesn't support
    "Options +FollowSymLinks". Is there any alternative to this?
