#23073: Wrong RewriteRule in a local Multisite installation
 Reporter:  Guy_fr           |       Type:  defect (bug)
   Status:  new              |   Priority:  normal
Milestone:  Awaiting Review  |  Component:  Multisite
  Version:  3.5              |   Severity:  major
 Keywords:                   |
 - WampServer on Windows 8
 - Install Wordpress in a subdirectory of the document root(here a
 directory "multitest")
 - Setup multisite in subfolder mode.

 Rules displayed for .htaccess in the wordpress textarea of the network
 page are:

 RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-(content|admin|includes).*)
 c:\wamp\www\multitest/$2 [L]
 RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ c:\wamp\www\multitest/$2 [L]
 Result in the browser window of a subsite admin board is an error:
  Forbidden You don't have permission to access
 /multitest/C:wampwwwmultitest/wp-admin/ on this server.

 For the subsite itself, at least paths for css are broken.

 RewriteRules should be:

 RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-(content|admin|includes).*)
 /multitest/$2 [L]
 RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ /multitest/$2 [L]

 Looking at code source in network.php, I fixed it for my personal use by
 adding: $rewrite_base = $base; before the htaccess code is displayed to

 This could be done with local multisite installation only.
