Let me clarify this for you. I have a blog in my >root directory and I have added a sub direectory called /bananas
I want to access images or php files that I have uploaded to the bananas directory but when I type http://www.domain.com/bananas/ I get a 404 error. I have even uploaded an index.php file in there to see if it was only directory browsing that was the problem but I still get a 404.
I am having this problem too. I tried moving wordpress into its own subdirectory and then removing the wordpress stuff from the root’s .htaccess, but I’m still having the same problem acessing subdirectories.
