Install not working, installed within another WP blog WordPress

I have two urls hosted of one server. Each URL has a wp blog on in, I created a folder inside the second one to host another blog, and although everything looks fine, I get a blank page when I try to run the installation script. When I changed permissions to 777, I got a 404 message. I have tried to modify the .htaccess, from recommendations here [http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2661274/wordpress-htaccess-in-root-overriding-htaccess-in-subdomain-subdomain-app-not-wo] but nothing is working. The blogs are all up-to-date code. Need help.

URLs?


katrinauch comments:

www.pregnancy2-0.com<--where I am trying to install the new blog
www.pregnancy2-0.com/fantasticfour <--the new blog that won't install
www.zeegomedia.com <--the blog that was first installed on the server


Peter Michael comments:

Thanks. On what host provider are you? Can you post the content of the .htaccess file from both zeegomedia.com and pregnancy2-0.com?


katrinauch comments:

inmotionhosting.com

zeegomedia .htaccess is
<# To set your custom php.ini, add the following line to this file:
# suphp_configpath /home/yourusername/path/to/php.ini

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
</IfModule>

# END WordPress
>

Pregnancyi s
<RewriteEngine on

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
</IfModule>

# END WordPress>


Peter Michael comments:

Try this for your pregnancy2-0.com .htaccess:


# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /fantasticfour/
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /fantasticfour/index.php [L]
</IfModule>
# END WordPress


I am assuming WordPress is installed directly in /fantasticfour/.


katrinauch comments:

That is the correct directory, but it didn't work.


Peter Michael comments:

Tried but without success. Two options:

- Contact your provider and see if they can fix it
- Enable Multisite

Since you want to have a new WordPress site within a existing WordPress installation, maybe enable Multisite with the 'Sub-directories' option is the best bet. See [[LINK href="http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network"]]http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network[[/LINK]]

Can you give me FTP info? I will try to figure it out.


Hai Bui comments:

I fixed the error and sent you a message. Did you check it?


katrinauch comments:

I didn't see your message, the only thing that fixed the site was contacting my provider.


Hai Bui comments:

I made changes to the files permission, .htaccess file and made it work (except a database error which was not related to the problem). I sent you a message right after that, I still keep a copy (of that message) in my inbox. You didn't receive the message or you just don't want to pay?? I'm disappointed.


katrinauch comments:

I am new to this site, and I am having a hard time finding the PMs, which I would have sent to you if I had seen it. Yesterday, I contacted my provider after several people recommended it. It didn't work when I got on the phone with them, and they reinstalled it and changed some server side info, and then it worked. Maybe what you were doing overlapped that time. I have no problem paying, but I really didn't see your note—still haven't been able to find it. From my experience, contacting my provider solved the problem. I actually don't know who "deserves" the prize.

Try uploading fresh files. If it doesn't work, download error_log file at the root of your blog. Post it here.
Also try to disable your plugins (if there are ones), maybe they are the problem.

Finally, if nothing works.. Contact your host :)
