[Plugin: WP Super Cache] 403 Forbidden When Accessing Mp3 files with htaccess (2 posts)

    I was excited about using wp super cache and it has been caching fine, speeding things up....however I just discovered that the htaccess rules are making it so that mp3 files in the wordpress folder no longer get served up and just give a 403 forbidden error when trying to access. As soon as I take out the "wp super cache" htaccess rules it works fine.

    In the same level as the /wpcontent/ folder I have a folder called "/mp3player/

    eg: http://www.domain.com/mp3player/folder/files.mp3

    Do any of you know how I can get this to work? I was trying to add a path in the "Accepted Filenames & Rejected URIs" of wp super cache, but either I didn't enter it correctly or this doesn't work for this.

    Any help or ideas would be GREATLY appreciated!

    It appears that there is an issue with having an option in the .htaccess file with a rule "Options Indexes" to allow browsing the folder. As soon as I take this out I can download files fine. GRRRRrrrr..
