We recently had a customer who had Windows Hosting with IIS and she had two WordPress blogs hosted on two subdirectories on the same hosting space. Windows hosting should be the last thing that should come to your mind when you want to do WordPress hosting as it will never come close to LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) functionalities. Now the problem was that she could not set up Permalinks on both blogs. There was an already published solution on how to setup Permalinks in Wordpress on IIS but we had to tweak that a little to get it working in this scenario.

Im so happy to see Zyxware publishing articles :) I have a wp installation in the root and just installed another one in a subdir. So, both these pages exist : My problem is that when http://example.com/new-wp-install/about is requested, it's being redirected to http://example.com/about as the default mod_rewrite rules check only the last part "about" and redirect to the main install. Anoop chetta, do you know the regex for fixing this in htaccess ? I tried a lot of patterns . . no avail Also, it may work if we set to parse .htaccess from each subdirectory where it exists and not just from the root ? Is that possible ? webmaster access_time 25 Nov 2020 - 01:59 In reply to I came here via google.. Im by thinkdj (not verified) Can you please post the rewrite rule and a simple regex match on new-wp-install\/about should do the trick.

It was a double WP install, on the same hosting account, using 2 different domains, on one of them the blog is not even served from the "real" hosting path, and where both supposed to use pretty permalinks. If this is not already a WP-routing nightmare, it was all had to be done under a Windows hosting environment - and this actually posed the biggest hurdle! Installing Apache-like mod_rewrite ISAPI's is out of the question on a shared host, so I was left with the dreaded single error page for the entire account. And I'm sure no PHP wiz... And here is where your script helped me, in guiding me in the right path. After a some tinkering with your code, the host's domain-pointing and URL redirection, and WP own redirect, it all now plays nicely, thank god... and you! So all the best and keep posting your coding tips - you may never know when it will save someone from the other side of the world.
