This .htaccess file is based on the CakePHP default but simply adds a rewrite rule to exclude the "blog" directory from Cake's control.
<ifmodule mod_rewrite.c=""%gt; RewriteEngine on RewriteRule ^(blog).* - [NC,L] RewriteRule ^blog /blog [L] RewriteRule ^$ app/webroot/ [L] RewriteRule (.*) app/webroot/$1 [L] </ifmodule%gt;
If you want to prevent Cake from controlling multiple directories you can simply modify the rewrite rule like such:
RewriteRule ^(blog|my|other|directories|go|here).* - [NC,L]
In order to accomplish this on an IIS server you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for support in getting his expensive software to do what it says it does on the box. Tip
