    Summary: A brand new installation didn't work even though the server passed the requirements.

    Their response was that:

    > I have exact same issue. Already wasted one whole days , then saw this post.

    > I have the same issue. Wasted whole day on it, did fresh install twice. Then came to this from another report that was closed.

    > have the same exact issue, first use of Magento. searching for a solution without luck.

So it seems that if your blog is located in /path/to/magento/pub/blog that should hit (referring to This seems right to me considering it's a public directory. If you're looking for easy solutions (i.e. let's not configure it separately) then maybe a symlink from pub/blog to your wordpress directory would be a stop-gap, as it seems the default Magento .htaccess allows symlinks too.
