Hi, i'm installing silverstripe in the \www root and everything works fine but I still want users to be able to reach old site content in the form http:<my_domain>/<url>, because every request now i served directly to silverstripe I get a Page Not Found on such requests. Must I use RewriteCond/RewriteRule for each and every url that arent part of silverstripe?

You've got two options:

1. Install SS in a separate directory. e.g wwwroot/mywebsite
2. Add individual entries into the .htaccess file to ignore rewriting for specific URLs. e.g.:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/blog

i guess you have a subdirectory with the content of the old site (e.g. "old"). if so you could add this rule to your .htaccess. make sure you add it before the silverstripe rules.

RewriteRule ^(old)($|/) - [L]

ohps sean was faster :-|

lerni: Good idea. Didn't consider that - but it's a good way to go considering the SS site would contain the new content.
