To force .htaccess to ignore a folder, you can use the "RewriteCond" directive in your .htaccess file. Here's how you can do it:

  1. Open your .htaccess file located in the root directory of your website using a text editor.
  2. Add the following lines to your .htaccess file:
1
2
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/folderName/


Replace "folderName" with the name of the folder you want to ignore.

  1. Save the .htaccess file and upload it to the server.


These lines of code will enable the RewriteEngine and set a condition to check if the request doesn't start with the specified folder name. If the condition is true, the rules defined in the .htaccess file will not be applied to that folder. This means that any rules or directives you have defined in your .htaccess file will be ignored for that specific folder.


Make sure to replace "folderName" with the actual name of the folder you want to ignore.
