I have a main drupal7 site and a drupal6 site that "lives" within the main drupal7 site. The urls look like this: example_d7.com and example_d7.com/dir/example_d6. Each of these sites are served out of a separate directory: /www/drupal_sites/example_d7 and /www/drupal_sites/example_d6. I have placed apache directives from the default drupal .htaccess files directly in a vhost file.

My problem is that while clean urls work on the main site, example_d7.com, clean urls do not work at example_d7.com/dir/example_d6. The front page of example_d7.com/dir/example_d6 works. When I append a index.php?q=admin to the url, I can navigate the site.

I have tried a variety of rewrite rules and conditions. I am running apache 2.2.10.

Main drupal7 site configuration:

    <Directory /www/drupal_sites/example_d7>
    AllowOverride None 

    ...snip...

    # Various rewrite rules.
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
        RewriteEngine on

        RewriteRule "(^|/)\." - [F]

        # RewriteBase /

        # Pass all requests not referring directly to files in the filesystem to
        # index.php. Clean URLs are handled in drupal_environment_initialize().
        RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
        RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
        RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !=/favicon.ico
        RewriteRule ^ index.php
    </IfModule>
</Directory>

Drupal6 subsite configuration:

Alias /dir/example_d6 /www/drupal_sites/example_d6
<Directory /www/drupal_sites/example_d6
             AllowOverride None

             ...snip...

            <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
              RewriteEngine on

              # Rewrite URLs of the form 'x' to the form 'index.php?q=x'.
              RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI}/ ^/dir/example_d6
              RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
              RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
              RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !=/favicon.ico
              RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /dir/example_d6/index.php?q=$1 [L,QSA]
            </IfModule>
</Directory>

I have also used the rewritebase directive RewriteBase /dir/example_d6 to no avail.

This only stopped working after a migration of the main site to drupal7. The drupal6 site also used to be part of a multisite containing the main and subsites. Surprisingly, there no rewrite conditions or rules before.

What do you want to redirect to if client request /dir/example_d6/index.php?q=www/drupal_sites/example_d6/admin/settings? –  quanta Aug 22 '11 at 2:20
