I am trying to install magento 2 in a sub folder of already installed magento 2, when I try to access sub folder, it takes me to 404 page for the root magento 2.

404 error occur when system is unable to find location/path of folder/file if you are using ubuntu open terminal in sub-folder and run this will show you the path then use that path to access that folder


hope this helps


Update your .htaccess in parent root folder

For example

    - app/
    - design/
    - Magento_site2/
           - app
           - .... 
    -.htaccess <-update this

Like this

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
       RewriteEngine on
       RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URL} "/Magento_site2/" 
       RewriteRule .* index.php [L]
