[Solved] How do I put Bludit into a Blog folder?

I am working in dev on MAMP.

I got Bludit to work inside my blog folder at localhost/blog/bludit

I want to use Bludit for the blog only, the rest of the site will be static HTML.

How do I configure it to work in localhost/blog/

I have searched this forum but did not find instructions.

Thank you.

What do you mean with "static HTML"? Static pages of the types .htm, .html or .php or static content in Bludit as addition to the blog?

The rest of the site is hard-coded as .html files.

I want to run Bludit as a blog inside the blog folder only.

example.com/blog is where the Bludit install will run from.

Right now it's example.com/blog/bludit

You can move Bludit (the content of the directory /bludit) to the directory example.com/blog.

When I do that, only the main page shows. Clicking any link produces a 404 error.

Is the module mod_rewrite enabled?

Is there a file .htaccess in the root directory? If yes, what directives are given?

Yes. This is what is in my .htaccess file:

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^ index.php [L]

In the root directory above the directory with Bludit?

In this case you have to exclude the directory /blog.

Yes, that is in the root directory above the blog folder.

How do I exclude the blog folder? Thank you.

I tested it on my server. It should work without excluding the directory.

Is mod_rewrite enabled on your server?
