[resolved] Directory structure problems (5 posts)

    After upgrading to 2.0 I noticed my directory structure appears to be acting weird:

    I tried accessing my /stats/ directory to check my monthly web server stats and now I keep getting my blog main page instead.

    I checked my .htaccess file:

    ErrorDocument 404 /404

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress

    It's smaller than it used to be in v1.5. I deleted the code between # BEGIN WordPress and # END WordPress, and was able to access my /stats/ directory again. But permalinks don't work with that missing code. So I rebuilt my .htaccess file and now I can't access the /stats/ directory again.

    Also trying to access directories that don't exist, eg: http://www.escape-key.com/nada/ , I still get the blog main page.

    Any ideas?

    Have you tried removing the ErrorDocument line?

    Yes, I removed it but it's still the same.

    Hmmm. The rest of the commands are the exact same as mine so I'm afraid I'm stumped.

    Found a fix for this at http://wordpress.org/support/topic/55033?replies=11

    Possibly because I'm hosted at Dreamhost. Partial fix but I'm a happy camper.
