I'm hoping that you are my saviours. There seem be lots of people with this problem on the forums, but no clear answer. Here's my predicament:-
I've just put together a new Wordpress site on new hosting and it works a treat. I'm over the moon at how cool it is. However, on our previous (non Wordpress) hosting we had a little ordering system for our customers that sat in a folder in the route, away from the main. It has it's own index.php and could be reached by going to www.domain.com/ericsinfo
I brought the folder into the new hosting and positioned in the root just like before, however when I go to www.domain.com/ericsinfo I get a 404 error within Wordpress. Even if I type www.domain.com/ericsinfo/index.php, still a Wordpress 404.
I've read that I should edit the .htaccess file, but my template doesn't seem to have one and I don't really want to create one using other peoples recommended code unless I break something.
I can see that Wordpress taking over the 404 process is quite cool and don't want it to disappear entirely. I just want to be able to use the ordering system like we were previously able to.
I'll be eternally grateful for your help!
