My main blog always has had root.com/files as upload directory.
When installing multisite I discoved that a .htaccess rewrite rule also involves /files/ . This conflicts with the existing physical folder. Understandably, images and other uploads on my main blog don't work now.
What is the best way to fix it? I understand I could relocate all existing files and go through the database to change all links in posts and all file locations for the Download Monitor downloads. I'm looking for an easier option though.
