    Tell SS to ignore directories Link to this post

    If I try to visit a folder that contains a custom app we developed, SS takes over and redirects me to a 404 page. How can I tell it to ignore all requests for that folder (and a few others) and let Apache handle them on its own? For example, if my custom application is located in a folder called foo (http://www.example.com/foo/index.php), SS brings up the 404 Not Found page instead of our application. I'm assuming this has something to do with the mod_rewrite rules in .htaccess but I don't know what.

    Hi labman,

    You are quite correct in assuming it is the .htaccess preventing that from happening. You'll find the code you're looking for in the block at the end, wrapped in the <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>.
