I'm not clear yet about your suggested changes so here's some further
information and questions.
>Assuming you want to access the wiki at
It's not that I want to access the wiki at http://lauraogrady.ca/wiki/
it's that this is the method that is used in the Short URL process (i.e.
the /wiki directory is fake). My wiki current resides in
(note I had a typo in my first post, it
is /ckbiki not /ckbwiki) and as such the localsettings.php and index.php
(for MediaWiki) are called from there.
>the line "RewriteRule ^wiki/*$
/cbwiki/index.php [L,QSA]" is right but
the line "RewriteRule ^/*$
/cbwiki/index.php [L,QSA]" which redirects
accesses to >>http://lauraogrady.ca/ to the wiki will interfere with you
>If the wiki redirects you to
where you want it to lice, don't
change LocalSettings.php, even if
you're getting a >>404. Function of the .htaccess is to make accesses to
the chosen short url go to the index.php
What I'm trying to do is get the URLs to read in this format:
I get what you mean about not being concerned about a 404 error but in
this instance when I do get it this means I can't access the wiki. To be
precise about the nature of the 404 in this context: I'm getting the
'file not found' template page from WordPress. WordPress has been
installed in my public directory as a content management system.
