Allowing non-SS subfolders

This came up about a year ago and I'd hoped it would be addressed by now.

I have created a subdomain to manage some content. Lets call it content.mysite.com

My hosting creates a folder called public_html/content/ and all the scripts, images etc go in there.

I've got SS sitting in public_html but it won't allow me access to either the subdomain or the folder.

Is there a marker file I can put in my "content" folder to tell SS to ignore it?

thanks

I actually have a complete ss installation in a sub directory of a ss installation. To make sure the top ss installation passes all requests for the lower one I have the following .htaccess file in the top ss installation:

RewriteEngine On

RewriteBase /

RewriteRule ^familytrees$ familytrees/ [R,L]
RewriteRule ^familytrees/(.*)$ familytrees/$1 [L]

### SILVERSTRIPE START ###
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(\.gif)|(\.jpg)|(\.png)|(\.css)|(\.js)|(\.php)$

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^(.*)$
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule .* sapphire/main.php?url=%1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
### SILVERSTRIPE END ###

The RewriteRules means that any request coming in that starts with /familytrees is passed through to the lower ss installation in the familytrees subdirectory. All other requests are handled by the normal ss handler.

Check out www.pyenet.co.nz and www.pyenet.co.nz/familytrees to see the effect.
