[MediaWiki-l] Wordpress and Mediawiki Nice URL Problem

Hi Isabell,

I think it's your last rewrite rule:

     RewriteRule ^/*$ /w/index.php [L,QSA]

If I'm not mistaken that's taking requests to the following:

     http://www.mydomain.com
     http://www.mydomain.com/

and forwarding them on to your wiki. It should be safe to remove (or 
comment out) that line.

Cheers,
Rob.
