If I install a cms at the root of my domain, and use URL rewriting to get clean URLs, I can no longer host files in arbitrary directories under the root. (Files that aren't suitable for the cms to handle.) So I am looking for a way to achieve the following:
- install the cms in a subdirectory, rather than root, e.g. mydomain.com/cms/
- when a browser visits mydomain.com, it should be redirected to mydomain.com/cms/ to see the main page of the site.
- when a browser visits mydomain.com/some-other-folder, it should be able to access files there in a standard way, without interference from the cms.
I tried the simple-minded solution of
Redirect / /cms
but this only creates an infinite loop. What are my other options, please?
