Site Statistics and Wordpress



I’ve installed a new domain with only Wordpress on the top level.

When I click on the site statistics link from within the Dreamhost panel (under status), I would expect to be able to view my site statistics reports, but instead I get a Wordpress page with a 404 page not found error.

Does anyone know what I can do to get Wordpress to pass this request through? Since the ‘/stats/’ directory is a special directory and doesn’t really exist, I guess this request should somehow be intercepted by apache instead of Wordpress? Do I need to put something in my htaccess file?

I’m very confused.


there’s a bit of code in the wiki you can add to your htaccess file to do this
