    Can SS live along side other programs... Link to this post

    Can SS live along side other programs? I'm adding PDG Commerce to a SS site. PDG says that their program can live along side most CMS tools in its own directory and not use a subdomain. PDG Commerce uses a database and CGI. I'm just curious if I should anticipate any issues with this. Has anyone had any experience with a similar situation?

    Thanks!

    If you add an exception to .htaccess for the directory that the product is stored in, it should work fine. I have LifeType and Simple Machines Forum working just fine with this technique.

    Under the line:

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

    Add a condition like the following (for the "forum" directory in this case):

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(^\/forum*)
