access a folder/directory in wordpress
Suppose you have installed wordpress in root directory of your account.
There is a folder/directory, say docs in the same (root) directory. You will not be able to access this folder like www.mysite.com/docs url.
The wordpress will redirect to a 404 page instead.
To override the wordpress rewrite rules, add the following line to .htaccess in the root folder.
RewriteRule ^docs/.*$ – [L]
right after the following lines in the .htaccess file already there.
This will do the trick and you will able to access the folder docs and its contents via any web browser.
