htaccess muwordpress +bbpress

  • 810798

    I installed muwordpress (with directories not subdomains) and bbpress and integrated them.. I added

    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?forum/(.*) forum/$2 [L,R]

    to the .htaccess in the wp directory and it worked before i added the code

    define(‘WP_BB’, true);

    if ( !defined(‘DB_NAME’) ) {



    into the bb-config.php file to get integration to work.. now it gives me a loop error..? any ideas on how to get the htaccess file to forward the directory to it?

    opps, I mean when i put

    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?forum/(.*) forum/$2 [L,R]

    it takes it back to the /blog directory.. but when i put

    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?forum/(.*) forum/$2 [R,L]

    it gives me the redirect error..


    Alright, i tested a few more things and it is definitely a problem when i include the wp-config.php file in bb-config.php.. here is the htaccess file im using: if i try and forward it to a directory like “forumtest” with nothing in it it will work perfectly.. and if i take out that require it will load fine as well.. but with errors because it cant find the functions that file defines..

    RewriteEngine On

    RewriteBase /blogs/

    #uploaded files

    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/$ index.php [L]

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

    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^.*/wp-admin$

    RewriteRule ^(.+)$ /$1/ [R=301,L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d

    RewriteRule . – [L]

    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(forum) $2 [L]

    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-.*) $2 [L]

    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*.php)$ $2 [L]

    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    <IfModule mod_security.c>

    <Files async-upload.php>

    SecFilterEngine Off

    SecFilterScanPOST Off





    That wpmu tag is going to be your best friend:

    Not many people with wpmu experience here.

    I know Trent Adams uses it though (he’s also on IRC)

    Also, wpmu 2.6 is a no-go with bbPress 0.9 because of cookies.


    thanks _ck_,

    It seems to be a problem with when you include the wp-config… There must be a check somewhere in one of the files included in it that checks if that has been registered or is a banned blog, and wp-admin must be hardcoded in somewhere to be a safe directory.. i just havent had time to go through and look for where that happens.. been making a bunch of other customizations instead, as this problem can be solved by just using sub-domains..
