I want to create a folder within wordpress site at root and add a php page abc.php with simple code like <?php echo "Test php page." ?> But when I try to run this page like this http://mydomainname.com/Myfolder/abc.php it gives error "This site can’t be reached" Why it is not reading my php page. I did the same on my another domain and it is working fine. Please help.

    Can't be reached? That shouldn't happen: if that's the correct path to a file the exists on disk then the server should run it without any interference from WordPress, assuming you have a reasonably default server configuration. Check your server access logs and errors logs.

  • However, that's not the WordPress way. If you want to run specific PHP you should probably do it as a shortcode or on a page-specific template.

  • Page exists at its correct location. I will learn about shortchode and page specific template. I will also check logs. Is there any server config that can restrict a page to run this way?
