Re-write help

Hi,

I have the attached .htaccess file, which works great so far, but now I want to be able to specify folders which should not be included in the rewrite, i.e. images, css, and javascript etc

At the minute calls for images and javascript files are not working due to the rewrite
rewriteEngine on 
# This will handle any file that ends in php (like index.php)
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.digitalassetbag.com
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} php$
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} !subdomain=
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ([^.]+)\.digitalassetbag.com
RewriteRule ^/?(.+)/?$ /$1?subdomain=%1 [QSA]
 
# This will handle URLs like /products
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.digitalassetbag.com
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !php$
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} !subdomain=
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ([^.]+)\.digitalassetbag.com
RewriteRule ^/?(.+)/?$ /$1.php?subdomain=%1 [QSA]

Instead of specifically excluding certain folders, what I do is this: I just exclude anything that is already a valid filename from the Rewrite; the attached added lines should go right below the RewriteEngine On line in your .htaccess file. The first line excludes valid, existing directory names from the RewriteRule(s). The next line excludes valid filenames from the Rule.
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f

Hi,

Sorry for the delay, I've just got back from holiday.

That solution didn't work, it broke the rest of my re-write rules.

You can simplify your rules a little bit. If you'd like to exclude a specific folder, use e.g.

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/folder/

like:
RewriteEngine on 
# This will handle any file that ends in php (like index.php)
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} !subdomain=
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ([^.]+)\.digitalassetbag\.com
RewriteCond %1 !=www
RewriteRule \.php$ /$1?subdomain=%1 [QSA,L]
 
# This will handle URLs like /products
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !\.php$
# exclude two folders
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/(images|css)/
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} !subdomain=
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ([^.]+)\.digitalassetbag\.com
RewriteCond %1 !=www
RewriteRule ^/?(.+)/?$ /$1.php?subdomain=%1 [QSA]

There's a ! (=not) missing, it should read
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/folder/
 
resp.
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/(images|css)/
