Is it possible to have micro-site inside of SilverStripe website ?
I have my website on address and my microsite is here (on webserver main website is directly in public_html and micro-site is in public_html/micro/ directory).

The problem is that I can't start the other website becaue SilverStripe is blocking it. (tells me that page doesn't exist, while it's not a page in SS site but separate "thing")

My question is : is it possible to divide those two ? can I have SS website in main directory and the other one in some subfolder ?

If you just want SS to ignore that director then you need to add a rule to your .htaccess file telling it to ignore requests to that folder. Put this above the RewriteRule in the .htaccess

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

I usually find it easier to create a new .htaccess file in the subfolder. Apache searches from the deepest folder back, so it'll use the first .htaccess it finds. This way you don't have to modify your silverstripe installation. For example, for a site that doesn't need rewrite, this is sufficient:

RewriteEngine Off
