I have a folder called "stats" on my server that I cannot access anymore because wordpress redirects it to the "Page not found". This folder has nothing to do with wordpress. I have searched for a solution but nothing seems to be working. I am using the theme elegant fusion.

For clarification, the folder is on the same level directory wise as "wp-admin", "wp-content", "wp-includes".

Does anyone know how I can access my folder without going through wordpress?

Thank you in advance!

yourdomainname.com/stats/filename.php did you try this ? – pr1nc3 Sep 2 '13 at 4:37
you can access it directly. – Manigandan Arjunan Sep 2 '13 at 5:27
If you are comfortable with .htaccess and mod_rewrite rules, you can modify it to do what you want, in case you don't want to access directly like already suggested. – GµårÐïåñ Sep 2 '13 at 8:35
What were you hoping for? A directory listing of stats? – shea Sep 2 '13 at 9:57
