    Code:
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^aaa\.com$
    RewriteRule (.*) http://www.aaa.com/$1 [R=301,L]
    RewriteRule ^$ wp-aaa-folder [L]
    My site which is word press and hosted with Host Gator. which should answer your question
    Thanks for your advice.

    .htaccess
    Code:
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /WPReynold/
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /WPReynold/index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    ...
    ...
    WPReynold - WP folder
    reynoldstocks.com - URL

    Whether delete all content on this section and replace it with
    Code:
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^reynoldstocks\.com$
    RewriteRule (.*) http://www.reynoldstocks.com/$1 [R=301,L]
    RewriteRule ^$ WPReynold [L]

    Back up your original .htaccess first as I haven't tested this and if it goes horribly wrong, you will want to back out quickly! As screwing up a .htaccess can bring a site down, it would be better to test this on a dev environment before going live with it.

    Already have .htaccess duplicated as .htaccess_copy

    Add following lines to the bottom of the section
    Code:
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^reynoldstocks\.com$
    RewriteRule (.*) http://www.reynoldstocks.com/$1 [R=301,L]
    RewriteRule ^$ WPReynold [L]
    Reload the webpage

    On browser ran;
    Code:
    http://www.reynoldstocks.com
    it popup "Future home of something quite cool" page

    Ran;
    Code:
    http://www.reynoldstocks.com/WPReynold
    It changed back to
    Code:
    http://www.reynoldstocks.com
    immediately.

    Deleted the tesing .htaccess file and changed the duplicated file back to .htaccess

    Reload the page. It doesn't work anymore.

    Running;
    Code:
    http://www.reynoldstocks.com/WPReynold
    change back;
    Code:
    http://www.reynoldstocks.com
    still displaying "Future home of something quite cool" page.

    This is a testing site. Nothing has been built yet. I can reinstall it.

    Edit:
    After reboot PC /reynoldstocks.com/WPReynold works again

    Hi elija,

    Sorted out my problem as follows;

    To make multi-domains to work on WordPress(WP) perform steps as follow;
    (I'm not going to mention "Hosted Domains" setup here)

    1) Install WP on a directory/folder of the domain (not root/webroot)
    say, aaa.com (directory)

    2) Create a directory /aaa.com/wpaaa for WP and install WP on it

    3) After installation completed and effective, go to File Manager. Copy both .htaccess and index.php on /aaa.com directory

    4) On index.php

    change the line - require('./wp-blog-header.php');
    to - require('./wpaaa/wp-blog-header.php');

    reload the page. That is all, not necessary touching .htaccess

    On browser running AAA Home or /aaa.com displays WP front page. That's it.

    However to login WP it still requires full path, /aaa.com/wpaaa/wp-admin. I haven't found a solution yet.


    Anyway, lot of thanks for your assistance.

    B.R.
