    htaccess and subdomain problems Link to this post

    hello!

    i'm a bit new to programing and silverstripe, and i have now some nasty problem with my current installation:

    i installed silverstripe to root and have a subdomain in root/folder/

    now, first my subdomain wasn't working. i asked around a bit and took the rewriterule line out of the htaccess file. that seemed to solve the problem at first, i could access the subdomain now. but later i found out that my primary domain isn't working anymore, i get the 403 Forbidden site

    i looked through the forum and tried every given advice i found, but nothing seems to work.

    i added RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d without anything more than that my subdomain still works.

    if i leave it, both pages give me the 500 internal server error page.

    as i only changed the htaccess it has to be the problem, so i would really appreciate any advice or solution as i really need both pages running =)

    thanks in advance!

    PS: if there is yet a topic referring to this problem i haven't found, please link!

    I have several nested sites running inside my silverstirpe installation. I just add these two lines to the .htaccess file after the RewriteBase line:

    RewriteRule ^subfolder$ subfolder/ [R,L]
    RewriteRule ^subfolder/(.*)$ subfolder/$1 [L]

    Re: htaccess and subdomain problems Link to this post

    I prefer to create a separate .htaccess for the subdomain. That's usually the cleanest way to solve the problem, because you don't have to put RewriteRules for a subdomain into the SilverStripe rewrite rules.

    If you don't need url-rewriting for your subdomain, just put an .htaccess with the following content into your subdomain folder:

    RewriteEngine Off

    ... and revert your .htaccess for your main site to the SilverStripe default rewrite rules.
