Hello All
I am new to SS and need a little help.The root folder that I have installed SS in also has 2 additional folders which I need to be able to access through http.I need to know how to make those folders reachable.Is it in the htaccess file that the changes need to be made?If so what lines would I need to add to it to be able to access the following 2 folders.


When I try to access SS won't allow me to.

Thanks In Advance

You have added this lines in the htaccess for each install?

# for /public_html/cast/
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /cast

# for /public_html/clients/
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /clients

I think fkennard you're wanting SS to 'ignore' requests to those 2 folders. If so then you want to add these conditions to your .htaccess. These add conditions which bypass the standard ss rewriting.

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/folder/.*
