I have a client that wants to keep both the old pages of their old, simple html site as they slowly migrate and update sections into joomla. The html site is rather large - maybe a hundred pages - what's the best way to co-exist without messing with joomla's files and folders?
I would just put all the joomla files and folders into the main directory of the current site and weed-out the old pages as we move along, but the old site has folders named "images" and "includes" in the main directory, and I don't want to put foreign (non-joomla) files into my joomla includes folder - I am afraid it's going to be a huge mess.
Is there a way to keep the two sites separate without
1) changing the URLs of the old site (ie putting the whole old site into a sub-folder) and
2) ending up with sub-directory URLs for the joomla site?
Is there a 301 redirect solution to this?
thanks for any help!
