Access a folder complete outside PHP CodeIgnitor Application on same domain.

Hi experts,

I would like to have a folder with complete independent files inside the same root as I have already a codeignitor applicatoin but I cant get it work.

My root folder has a folder called /application/ where the main application is saved.

and I would like to have now other .php filer which have nothing to do with the main application in a sub directory like this

Inside this folder might be other sub folders as well as several .php files.

When I try to access them now like: www.mydomain.com/mystuff/ I get CodeIgnitor file not found errors.
How do I have to do this in order to get this work?

thanks in advance

This sounds like expected behavior to me.  Codeigniter controls the routing of the requests.  These requests are served by scripts that are part of public_html/application.  So it seems logical that Codeigniter would not be aware of URL routes that are outside of its purview.  You can learn more about the way it works here:

If you want to have a new route, you can add it to the existing routes.  Then you can put your "mystuff" files in a directory that responds to the new route.  If this is information that you want to protect, you can use authentication to password-protect the contents of the directory.  This article has some more information that might be useful.
