Hi guys,

I have a SS install on a dev server which is running under a subdomain. On the physical server, the site is in a sub-directory under public_html. When I run the site, the home page renders fine, but subsequent pages don't. htaccess has a rewrite cond like this.

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^(.*)$ 

If I update the htaccess file so that it reads

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/subdirectory/(.*)$

Then sub pages render but the home page does not.

Does anyone have an example htaccess that fixes this?

You should leave the RewriteCond value as-is, and add a RewriteBase line, just after RewriteEngine On.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase '/subdirectory'
