    Hi, I have a domain name, ill call it for this question.
    i have wordpress installed in the root directory,
    i also have another copy of wordpress installed in
    everything works fine, no problems.. cant complain :)
    until i go to cpanel and put a password on

    now /members is password protected. , i access and still everything is fine.
    now i try to access expecting to be prompt with a user and pass login window..
    but instead i am brought to my root domain. and i see a wordpress themes page not found error.

    so my 2 cents is, my copy of wordpress in my root. is thinking i am trying to access a wordpress page called /members which i normally wouuld have created through the add new page thing through the admin panel, but sense that doesnt exist i get this error….

    could someone figure this out? and try to tell me what to do?

    Additional Details
    i tried this on two different servers, from two different companies, so im pretty sure its not server configuration. but who knows.


    Why do you need 2 wordpress installations anyway? Perhaps this is easier to accomplish with just 1 install.
    Or perhaps disabling your permalinks in the wordpress installation that is in the root folder. That way, if I’m right, that wordpress install won’t see /members as a new wordpress page, and your server should handle it as if its a subdirectory. Not sure about it though


    Thats a difficult issue. Perhaps WordPress mu can help you with this:
