How to install another cms in a sub-directory of Wordpress

I am trying to install shopping cart cms "x-cart" in a sub-directory "/store/" on my Wordpress site.

I have permalinks enabled and mod rewrite in htaccess... So when I try to access anything within "/store/" folder i am getting wordpress 404 :(

How do I exclude "/store/" folder in htaccess?

Here is my current one:

  # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    # END WordPress

Thanks in advance!


If you have a folder called "store" you don't need to do anything. This line:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d 

Is saying that "If the request is from a real directory (-d) ignore this index.php stuff and go with it". So, just create /store and put a "index.html" to see if it isn't an issue with x-cart instead of wp

If you are creating multi WP website, you can consider using WP multisites feature which can be found herecodex.

You might find it easier to either install x-cart on a sub-domain (, or just put it in a folder at the same level as wordpress
