I need clarification about this Installation instruction:
"Make sure to upload the '.htaccess' file in the root (top-level) directory and the '.htaccess' file in the directory named 'admin'."
I put my omeka installation in a subdirectory, say "subdir1/subdir2/." All Omeka files are under "subdir2."
I put a copy of the .htaccess file in the top root level directory, "subdir2" and there's a copy in the "admin" directory, per your instructions. However, when I went over to http://domain.com/subdir1/subdir2/ to begin Installation step 5. I got a 404 error, that...
"/subdir1/subdir2/" is not a valid URL and Error: script "index.php' is not found in path....
Error: script 'index.php' not found in path (/home/domain.com/subdir1/subdir2/themes/berlin/:/home/domain.com/subdir1/subdir2/application/views/scripts/)
I followed the list of things to check if the installation was unsuccessful, with no change.
My question: by "root directory" do you mean domain.com? I tried using .htaccess in that directory, but it caused problem for my wordpress installation that is in a different subdirectory - I couldn't access its login page. I don't have .htaccess file in the top directory, otherwise.
I already adjusted the .htaccess RewriteBase to include /subdir1/subdir2/ for admin, install and the top .htaccess files.
