Hello. This is my first post here. I have set up a site using SilverStripe and I am loving it. However, there is one big issue. Before I installed SilverStripe, I had a directory set aside for some iPhone web-apps. In this case, lets say it is "". Since I installed SilverStripe, everytime I try to access that directory/page, I get redirected to an error page generated by SilverStripe with the following error message:
"Page not found

Sorry, it seems you were trying to access a page that doesn't exist.

Please check the spelling of the URL you were trying to access and try again."

I am certain the directory is there, but I am unable to access/view it unless I remove my installation of SilverStripe. How can I fix this?

You'll probably want to add a Rewrite Condition to your .htaccess in the root folder:

#Add The Following Line
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/iphone/

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(\.gif$)|(\.jpg$)|(\.png$)|(\.css$)|(\.js$) 
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^(.*)$
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule .* sapphire/main.php?url=%1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
