  • Exclude directories within .htaccess

    I use the .htaccess file to run vB5, and I guess there might be the issue. I have some directories, which are not part of the forum. E.g. Testing, SQLBackup, Stats,..
    When I try to access these folders by adding the name after the domain, I get an vB Error.
    Invalid Page URL. If this is an error and the page should exist, please contact the system administrator and tell them how you got this message.
    How to exclude some directories of the RewriteEngine logic?

      Couldn't you just put an .htaccess file in one of those directories with:
      Code:
      RewriteEngine Off

        I use it to redirect to https

        Code:
        RewriteEngine On
        RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
        RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}

          If I delete the htaccess file in the sub-directory it works. But need these directories secured.

            In your root directory you should have http redirected to https in .htaccess. I am unclear why any url under your main domain is not secure:

            https://www.christforums.org/forum/e...pecific-domain



            If that doesn't work a work around maybe to password .htaccess those directories.

              Sorry, missunderstanding. I mean with secured, that these directories must be password protected. So if remove the htaccess in the sub-directory, the site is reachable but not protected anymore.
