I have a subfolder with a separate WordPress running on it. When I click on a link which should lead to the destination in the new website (the subfolder) it reads everything except the mentioned subfolder.

For example, my address is https://www.example.com and when I click the link, it should take to https://www.example.com/TheSubfolder/rest of the address. but it doesn't identify the subfolder. When I hover over the link it shows https://www.example.com/rest of the address.

How to solve this problem so everything shows correctly?

This is my .htaccess content. "old-parsik" is the subfolder which i am talking about.

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c> 
 RewriteEngine On 
 RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization}] 
 RewriteBase /old-parsik/ 
 RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L] 
 RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f 
 RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d 
 RewriteRule . /old-parsik/index.php [L] 
  • Sounds like you've perhaps not set the appropriate SITE_URL and HOME_URL in the WordPress config?

  • @MrWhite yes absolutely. Commented Jan 4, 2023 at 5:46
  • Please update your question with the contents of the apache configuration file for the second site and check that it's enabled. If you don't have a separate configuration file, that's the problem. Commented Jun 6, 2023 at 16:28
