My Silverstripe works.
It's installed in /var/www/CMS/ directory and i access to my CMS with an url like without problem.

But, i would like to redirect to /var/www/FORUM/ where i have a little php forum. I tried somes mod_rewrite rules in .htaccess file but impossible to access to the forum...

Could you help me please ? Could you show me some mod_rewrite rules which could works ?

It would be helpful to know what rules you have already tried in your .htaccess file. Could you please post them.

Excuse-me : i leaved out my problem... But today, i've resolved it :).

So :

  • In my Silverstripe '.htaccess' : nothing to change
  • In my Apache Silverstripe configuration : add "Alias /communauty /var/www/FORUM"
  • In my FORUM '.htaccess' (there are mod_rexrite rules for my FORUM) : change "RewriteBase /" by "RewriteBase /communauty"

It seem to work :D
