Hi experts,
we do have static pages where our customer can see the statistics of his page
He can access them with http://<domain>/statistic (symbolic link in webserver).
But now sapphire wants to take care of this :-(
How do I have to change my .htaccess to do this ?

I have tried several configrations which worked
perfect for my statstics site, but then /admin didn't work any longer.

TIA Stephan

You need to exclude /statistics urls being passed to sapphire. After this line:

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

Add this:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(\\statistic) 

That is, if the URL contains "\statistic", don't rewrite the url to sapphire.

thanks, but this doesn't work :-(

I get the 404 page (page not found) from silverstripe.

In that case, the rule is incorrect. I'm not an expert in rewriting rules, so have a look at the apache module documentation. Basically you just want to add a condition so that if the path is to your symlink, it is ignored.
