WordPress redirecting legitimate directories (5 posts)

    I have WP installed in a domain root, along with a whole bunch of other stuff in other directories, and accessing these subdirectories has never been a problem.

    However, I recently installed phplist (http://www.phplist.com/) and I cannot access http://www.mydomain.com/lists/ or http://www.mydomain.com/lists/admin/ (req'd for setup) - all I see is the WP 404 page. Both dirs have index.php files, but I can't access them directly either (e.g. http://www.mydomain.com/lists/index.php).

    I was using 2.1, but updated to 2.5.1 and still have the same problems. I am not password-protecting anything with WP, so this is not the usual WP directory issue. I'm using the standard pretty permalinks htaccess.

    All help greatly appreciated.

    Do you have anything in your WP (i.e. a Page, a category) with the same name as your "lists" folder?

    No, nothing there is called lists. And I've tried renaming the directory to lots of other things, in any case.

    Still haven't figured this out.

    This solution does not work for me either: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/126593
