    I have installed wordpress in my root directory and I have url rewritting enabled. I am able to see all my posts and all without any problems. However I have a directory present in my root directory (say 'abc'). whenever I access my directory using the url http://www.mydomain.com/abc wordpress is giving HTTP 404 page not found. How can I exclude my directory from mode_rewrite?

    I have the same problem... Many blogers recommend to install WP into root dir. Now I want to install SM forum on my site and I cannot access forum/ folder that was created for this purpose. Every time I get 404 error page.

    Is the any method to fix it?

    I read that .htaccess rules will not help, because addresses are passed to internal WP rewrite engine.

    For some people worked this method: to put .htaccess file inside those folders with command RewriteEngine Off, but for me it doesn't work...

    OK here is my solution that I found.

    I noticed that WP captures address when forum dir has permisions set to 777, the same with install.php. I set permissions to 755 and I could successfully install SMF forum. On this site I'm using WP 2.2.3
