[Solved] Problem with vanilla sign in

I am having an issue signing into vanilla after a fresh install. It only happens when vanilla is installed on a domain that is running Wordpress. My main website is a Wordpress blog and I want vanilla set up at /demo/vanilla. The install works, but when I hit sign in, the pop up is my Wordpress blogs 404 error page. If I try and go anywhere besides the index, it goes to the Wordpress error page. See for yourself:

  • Thanks for the quick response. You were right, the .htaccess needed to be modified. I figured it out once I read the notes in the file. Just needed to specify the path to the forum.

    # Modified
    # If you modify this file then change the above line to: # Modified
       RewriteEngine On
       # Certain hosts may require the following line.
       # If vanilla is in a subfolder then you need to specify it after the /. 
       # (ex. You put Vanilla in /forum so change the next line to: RewriteBase /forum)
       RewriteBase /demo/vanilla
       RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
       RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
       RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php\?p=$1 [QSA,L]
