Support » Everything else WordPress » Mode rewrite exclude directory

  • 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

    Not work for me, another metod whit htaccess?

    I’m having the same issue with an install of bbPress, using WMPU.
