I have Wordpress installed at example.com.

I did have Joomla 3 installed at example.com/joomla.

Now example.com/joomla loads a Wordpress 404 for some reason.

Even example.com/joomla/index.php loads a Wordpress 404.

I can see the Joomla files are intact in the /joomla folder, and configuration.php contains the correct db details. I can see in phpMyAdmin the db is intact.

When I checked .htaccess in the /joomla folder it was called htaccess.txt. Renaming this to .htaccess did not resolve the problem.

How can I ensure the Joomla 3 website runs properly again from a sub-directory where Wordpress is installed in the root domain?

Thanks in advance.


You need to exclude the Joomla folder from WordPress's rewrite rules. In the WordPress .htaccess you would exclude /joomla
