This is a bit of a strange question I guess, but something I can't seem to find the answer to in documentation. Perhaps I'm just not searching for the correct thing.
I have a client who's website uses Fuel, hosted at, let's say "www.someclient.com"
They have a "workshop" thing that they've created using some type of application that generates a self contained JS application that they just want to hand to me to host...I don't have any access to the application used to create this application and I don't have the ability to edit the internal code because it's all compiled and minimized.
I need to host that folder at the "root" of the domain -- so like someclient.com/workshop -- but I can't seem to figure out how to do that with Fuel -- because obviously if that folder exists at the root -- but I try to go to that url, I get a 404 due to routing.
Is there a way to put an exclusion in the routing that I'm not seeing?
You should be able to put the folder at your web root and browse to it like any static website in a subfolder. If you are using Apache, the .htaccess rule will first look for a folder/file path and if it doesn't exist, it gets routed through FUEL. Do you have anything extra in your .htaccess?
That's a good question. I'll look and see. Thanks
Actually -- I just remembered -- our server team has moved us onto nginx...and from what I remember when they did it...they maybe don't even use the .htaccess anymore...so...I guess I'll likely need to get with them. Thanks for the response.
Yeah... .htaccess won't work with nginx and so it's likely a change in the nginx rules.
Yep. Figured. Thanks again!
