This should be an easy one, but I'm stumped...trying to install a PHP calendar in the /calendar directory on the root, but I can't get to the index.php file inside in the browser. I can access any images or other files in the calendar directory through the browser, but the request for an index page just returns a Silverstripe 404.

What do I need to do to get this PHP application working/accessible? Thanks in advance.

Exclude the directory where your other application is at from the .htaccess

for example, to exclude the dir "phpmyadmin" :

RewriteRule ^phpmyadmin$ - [L]
RewriteRule ^phpmyadmin/.* - [L]

Hmm, no dice. I'm trying to get to work, so I added:

RewriteRule ^calendar$ - [L]
RewriteRule ^calendar/.* - [L]

after SILVERSTRIPE END. No change...any idea on what I'm doing wrong?

Put them in the beginning of the file...

After Rewriteengine On....

Furthermore , I don't need whether it is (still) necessary , but you might also need an exclude-file in your project directory.
