Accessing WP-ADMIN on Sub-Server under root domain when root already has Wordpress installed.

In my root domain, I have installed Wordpress.

I created and installed Wordpress using the install script.

Both and show their respective front pages from their own WP resources, but if I attempt to go to : I am redirected to the login page for

I imagine this has something to do with .htaccess rewrite rules, but rewrite rules look like someone smashed a keyboard with their fists and pressed enter…so I don’t know what all of the language means.

I also don’t know which root folder gets which .htaccess file. looks like this:

BEGIN WordPress

RewriteEngine On RewriteBase / RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L] RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

END WordPress didn’t create one and I can’t login to access the permalink settings anyway.

How does one go about installing wordpress in a subserver without needing to worry about this?


You also need to sift through the database for configuration settings that specify the domain for that installation. It’s possible that you specified the top level domain when you installed, which is why it’s redirecting.
