    htaccess in root conflicts with that of wordpress

    Hi all,

    I've an htaccess in root like
    RewriteEngine On
    Options -Indexes
    Options +FollowSymlinks
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.%{HTTP_HOST}/$1 [R=301,L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !=/favicon.ico
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?page=$1 [L]
    to handle all requests in index.php of root directory.

    There is a wordpress module inside the /events directory, which has another htaccess like
    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /events/
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /events/index.php [L]
    # END WordPress
    Everything is fine if I make requests like http://www.example.com/events/ (with a trailing slash), but I get 500 Error - Internal Server Error when I try to access the page like http://www.example.com/events (with no slash at the end)

    What could be the reason? Can I write another rule to tell the system to consider /events like /events/?

    Any help would be highly appreciated.

    Edit: I removed the forced www rule for the time being
