Can SS live along side other programs...

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?

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*)

Thanks was looking for similar solution :)

BTW any problems if we do db rebuild ? Can we have some setting in Silver Stripe to ignore folder while rebuilding ? 100% conflict free :)
