WordPress install is preventing access to non word press subdomains
My wp-config file has the following entries
define( ‘WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE’, true );
I have other unrelated (non wordpress) websites in other subfolders of prime.net.nz – for example Xcloner is installed in http://www.prime.net.nz/xcloner – and that is the url that has always worked until now.
Since setting up the wordpress site, however my other subfolders have now become inaccessible via browser. It appears all subdirectories within http://www.prime.net.nz are being captured by wordpress somehow, not just the intended folder http://www.prime.net.nz/prime – so when I type http://www.prime.net.nz/xcloner in my browser, I now get an error 404 warning page as generated by the wordpress site.
How can I prevent unrelated directories being ‘captured’ or redirected (if that is what is happening) along with the one intended WordPress sub directory?
I have no redirects set up in my host Cpanel
Note, I have tried replacing the wp-config line define(‘PATH_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘/’); withdefine(‘PATH_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘/prime’) – this seems not to make any difference to behaviour of my other sub folders when typed as urls in a browser – all still get redirected to the error 404 page within the wordpress installation. However a side effect is that I can no longer log in to http://www.prime.net.nz/wp-admin – I get an error message in the WP admin login dialog saying ‘cookies have been disabled’ for my domain.
I definitely still want anyone just typing my root domain to get to the wordpress site , while retaining the ability to access the non wordpress sites
