    Please try replacing your .htaccess file with

        # Modified
        # If you modify this file then change the above line to: # Modified
        <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
           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 /thenameofmysubdirectory
           RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
           RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
           RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php\?p=$1 [QSA,L]
