I am trying to host some non-WordPress content on the server that contains a WordPress installation. I put together a test of this by uploading the HTML5 Boilerplate index file - basically just a hello world HTML file (renamed to boilerplate.html) to a directory where I plan to place some other content.
Just to make sure I got the correct path, I ran the following on my server:
[host]$ pwd /home/mrengy/mike-eng.com/files/prototype-pivot-pong [host]$ ls assets boilerplate.html index.html
http://mike-eng.com/files/prototype-pivot-pong/boilerplate.html is showing an "Oops. Sorry, but you are looking for something that is not here." error.
I also uploaded boilerplate.html to
http://mike-eng.com/files/boilerplate.html - shows the "Hello world" content as expected.
How can I get WordPress to show the content of boilerplate.html (independently alongside the WP installation) under the "prototype-pivot-pong" directory and not show the Oops message?
(using WordPress 4.5.1)
