Not Solved mybb wordpress htaccess conflict
Not Solved

I have installed Google-SEO plugin on mybb 1.8. it works on my local system but url rewrite fails on live system.

Reason is that on the live system, i have wordpress installed at the root level. then, in root, I have forum directory in which myBB resides. now there is apparently a clash between the htaccess of wordpress and the htaccess of mybb inside the /forum/ directory.

Due to this, the forum urls aren't rewrited by google-seo plugin. if we try to open forum, then it redirects to the homepage (wordpress-page).

Also i have to mention that board url is set to(no www):

check the two htaccess files,

wordpress .htaccess

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
# END WordPress

forum .htaccess

# -------------------------------------------------------------------
# This file is identical to MyBB's htaccess.txt example file,
# with rewrite rules for a standard Google SEO install added.
# Before using this file please make sure to:
#   - replace /MyBB/ with your forum folder, e.g. / or /forum/
#   - replace yoursite/MyBB with your forum URL
#   - name the file '.htaccess' (starting with the dot, no .txt)
# Alternatively you can add the required rewrite rules to your
# existing .htaccess, the specific rules required will be displayed
# on the plugin status page once Google SEO URL is enabled.

(Continuation for: trying to get SEO working for I made a previous help request, here:

We still haven't figured this out... Does anyone have some inspiration for us? I've also been looking at cloudflare, but that should't be a problem either as far as I can tell...


Not Solved
(could an admin move this to MyBB > Support Plugins...? Pretty please, I hope for more answers there. Appreciated!)

Post-edit: ok, I understand : ) I took the liberty to post our problem once more, here:
