files "globally" accessed - URL issue (3 posts)

    I' m trying to upload some pdf files to my Multisite. But what I intend to do is having a "global" url style for accessing those files from both my "sub" sites.
    I give an example:
    Supposing I host my site at domain.com I would like to access those files through http://www.domain.com/files/file1.pdf and not like this http://www.domain.com/wp-content/uploads/files/file1.pdf or even worse like this http://www.domain.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/2/files/file1.pdf.

    I tried creating the "files" folder on the root folder of my wordpress installation but a 404 error returns and the files are inaccessible.

    Any idea?

    It's complicated, but it can be done.

    Well I see...
    Maybe I'll stick with this restriction because I'm not quite familiar with the .htacess options. I figured out how to change it visually, as I mainly wanted so it's OK for now.

    Thanks for the quick answer. ;)
