[wp-hackers] wp-comments-post.php & file upload problem

Y'all are my last hope of figuring this problem out.
I have a blog (linked at the eom) on 2.3.3, and everything is fine with
it. I got an add-on domain the other day and after a lot of
hair-pulling, I finally got WP installed on the same server account as
my regular blog (related wp forum thread here
<http://wordpress.org/support/topic/158528?replies=3>). Yay, right?
Eh, not quite.
The add-on domain/blog URL is http://mccainblogs.com/ (don't heckle me
pls) and the location is /public_html/mccainblogs.com/(wordpress files);
in the options the wordpress address is set as
http://bamapachyderm.com/mccainblogs.com. (That's just background
information, I guess.)
My problem*: I can't comment on mccainblogs.com; I get the dreaded
blank screen stuck on wp-comments-post.php, no redirect to the original
post, and no comment gets posted. I've seen this issue in the WP forums
and elsewhere around the internets, but I can't find a solution that
applies even closely enough to help me figure it out. I'm not hosted on
Yahoo or IIS or any of those places, I'm hosted at Blogs-About (with
Lisa Sabin). I *have* turned off all plugins and tried the default
theme, and the same thing happens with comments. When I tried
commenting using IE, I saw that it's giving a 405 error. (!)
*The other problem:* I also can't upload anything (images) from the
admin (post) panel. It does nothing when I do it, and whatever I try to
upload shows up nowhere on the server. I can work around that with ftp,
but obviously I'd rather not.
I'm SURE this is all because of the add-on domain, because everything
works fine on my regular blog and my "testing" blog
(bamapachyderm.com/testing/ - nothing special with that one). I just
don't know what I'm missing! My .htaccess file is very close to the one
on my regular blog (with obvious changes, like instead of
bamapachyderm.com I have mccainblogs.com where needed). Is it possible
my .htaccess file should NOT say mccainblogs.com, but should instead
refer to the wordpress location address?
(bamapachyderm.com/mccainblogs.com/) I do NOT want to have
bamapachyderm show up in the mccainblogs.com URL to visitors, but I
don't care what it looks like to me, if that matters.
My assumption is that there's something I need to change in the
.htaccess file, but I don't know what that change would be. I even
thought maybe it had something to do with the canonical url, but this is
a new blog and I haven't set up any kind of redirects (/www/no www/ or
whatever) for it, and I'd think if that were the problem, I'd have it on
my regular blog as well, which I don't.
What am I missing, besides sleep?
