OK so I have a site.
It works
lives on my host public_html/
I created a new folder called DEV
public_html/DEV and FTP'd the install up.

Every time I access the dev site I get redirected tot eh original site with a 404

Any suggestions?

Hello Michael!
You have this redirection cos oxwall's .htaccess catch all HTTP queries in top public_html folder and redirect it to index.php file.
If you want skip queries in some child folder, just add this:
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/child_folder/
in oxwall's .htaccess file after this line:
RewriteEngine On

where child_folder is the name of your folder.
Try this and let me know if this works for you :)

RewriteBase /oxwall_subfolder

I inserted RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/child_folder/


RewriteRule (.*) /http-bind [L]

and it worked fine. I can now access my folder.

RewriteRule (.*) /http-bind [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/child_folder/
