Add this in your rewrite cond section in your .htaccess file

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/nameoffolder/.*

Yes did that but i dont have control over the apache.
So now i have to wait intill they restart the apache and the change kick in.

Is there no other way to do this ??

And should it not be

RewriteRule %{REQUEST_URI} !^/butik/.*

Instead of RewriteCon ??

My rewire config is now

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

RewriteRule %{REQUEST_URI} !^/butik/.*

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

I had a similiar issue, with the only difference being that the subdirectories on my server were in fact "holders" for subdomains of my website

This was the first thread that I came across, so for anyone else encountering this problem, I found a reasonably good workaround by simply adding a .htaccess file to the subdirectory with

"RewriteEngine Off"

In my case the subdomains that run in the subdirectories do not require the RewriteEngine, if yours do then you will have to add more complex rules, as discussed above.
