Use a different main index

I did some searching and the results indicated that yes, this is possible - but they either linked to pages that don't exist anymore, or were too abstract to be useful in determining how.

Right now my site is set up as such:

I want to make the index.php file something totally different, not running on the C5 engine at all. But I still want all of the content in C5 to be available as normal, which right now is like


What files do I change, and how do I change them?

I don't think this is possible without using some fancy rewrite rules in your .htaccess file.

Can you post the articles you've found? I currently can't see a solution which isn't going to be quite abstract.

The way concrete5 works depends on rewrite rules and since there are no files you can't simply check if a file exists.

Without knowing what you're really trying to achieve, can the webserver know which script to call in this situtation? (c5) (something else)

What could c5 use to determine the difference between the URLs?

lisbokt this is what I found.

What I want to do, essentially, is run Wordpress and C5 side-by-side. WP is set up to do multi-blog blogging and I have over 3,000 users and it's a rather particular setup. I have C5 set up with over 250 pages and it's all very cross-referenced and there's over 3000 images in the galleries and...

I want the to point to WP (or at least, the most recent post) and then to point to the "page1" in C5.

If that makes sense.

Yes, thanks for the clarification.

I don't think that's going to be easy, I'd use a RewriteMap (htaccess) to achieve this.

Just think about one thing: How can the web server know that is a wordpress site but isn't? You need to find a rule which you can process in your htaccess file or set up a map for each top level directory..
