WordPress Blocks Other Directories (10 posts)

    Hi there

    Hope someone can help here.
    I have WordPress installed in the root folder.
    I am now wanting to access another directory for my email marketing software but WordPress redirects to itself and says it cant find it?

    Is this a .htaccess issue or is there something else I am missing?

  2. Please don't bump your posts, it's against the rules.

    It MAY be an .htaccess issue, as by it's nature, WordPress will only redirect if it thinks a page belongs to it. I have my WP installed in root, and there are other non WP folders in the same level as wp-config.php

    So. What are the folder names? And what's in your .htaccess?

    Whoops, sorry bout that.

    .htaccess file is as follows:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    # END WordPress

    The folder is ww.prowireless.com.au/iemail that i am trying to access to install an email marketing software package.

    Thanks Ipstenu

  4. If that's your WHOLE .htaccess then it's fine.

    It looks like that URL is kicking you to http://www.prowireless.com.au/iemail/admin/ which is having issues. Was there a .htaccess you were supposed to put in there as well?

    Also you may want to disable your plugins for a test.

    that is were it should go to, that is the setup path for the software. there is no .htaccess file for the software, maybe there should be a custom one for it do you think?

    Deactivated all plugins and no difference.

  7. Depends on whatever the iemail software is, alas. Try renaming the iemail folder to something else (like marketing or something really random like 'sdfdfsdfsdf')

    Renaming folder to qwertyui didn't work sorry.

    Software is Interspire Email Marketer.
    Have used it before on a non WordPress site and was a great product.

  10. Ping your host. There's no reason for WordPress to do that.

    I mean, you can try turning off WP (or rather, renaming the htaccess to old.htaccess and switch to the Twenty Ten theme), but that just shouldn't be how WP works.
