Problem started when …
Since Sunday I put up Wordpress pretty urls which uses a .htaccess file to create urls alike ‘http:\mypage.com\nice\url\article’.
I checked wether I could enter my ‘existing/ hard’ files and directories in the directory and I could open and browse them for all, except for files and dirs having an htacces with AUTH…
If in a directory is another .htaccess file (fancy indexing no problem) having AUTH, the files and the directory will not be invoked. Instead the wordpress .htaccess kicks in and says it’s not a valid post.
It seems like the wordpress .htacess does not recognize existence of any files or directories having the .htacess with AUTH.
root looks like
/.htaccess (of wordpress)
/existingDirectoryFails, wordpress htaccess does not see it
– .htaccess (having AUTH)
Situation and problem re-explain
When I remove the .htaccess having "AUTH"
the .htaccess of Wordpress finds the directory and file and invokes them, so I can browse and open the files. With the htaccess ‘AUTH’, wordpress .htaccess sees the same url as a post.
What did you do with the htaccess?
I’m not an hero with htaccess AUTH and passwd is generated using dreamhost panel and the Wordpress htaccess is generated by Wordpress …
What did I do wrong? :S
