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
