I have Redmine in subfolder /var/www/redmine and Drupal in folder /var/www/

When I go to URL, Redmine shows ok, but is (over)handled by Drupal.

Apache config is as follows

<VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost

        DocumentRoot /var/www

        <Directory />
                Options FollowSymLinks
                AllowOverride None
        <Directory /var/www/>
        RailsBaseURI /redmine

        PassengerResolveSymlinksInDocumentRoot on
                Options Indexes FollowSymLinks -MultiViews
                AllowOverride All
                Order allow,deny
                allow from all

.htaccess file is

<IfModule mod_deflate.c>
    AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/css application/x-javascript application/javascript text/plain text/html text/xml application/xml

Can you post the .htaccess file. I believe the problem is with that. – ThatGuy Dec 20 '13 at 6:23
thanks, really, I should have pasted it first – Lambrusco.Newbie Dec 20 '13 at 6:25
Comment this out and restart apache RewriteBase / – ThatGuy Dec 20 '13 at 6:30
I commented out and restarted, with redmine it didn't help((. Seems that line was not needed in current config cause Drupal and Redmine work just the way they were working before – Lambrusco.Newbie Dec 20 '13 at 6:37
For starters then move the .htaccess to .htaccess.back and try to make sure that is where the issue is. – ThatGuy Dec 20 '13 at 6:42
