I have a question about how Drupal handles requests made to subdirectories of the Drupal root that aren't under Drupal control.
What I mean is lets say I have a Site directory as such:
My main site -- an HTML flat site -- includes -- sites -- ... Other drupal necessary files
My concern is: does Drupal load bootstrap on every server request made to its directory? For example, I go straight to mysite/anhtmlflatsite - does Drupal do any type of loading? Or does it just let the web server serve up the sub directory no Drupal love added?
I ask because right now when accessing these flat sites I'm noticing that some files in my includes directory are getting hit (we have them push messages to the error log so that's how I know they're getting loaded when I access these flat sites). Also whenever the Drupal install breaks so do the paths to these flat HTML nothing to do with Drupal sites as well.
Curiouser and curiouser... Anyone have any insight to what's down the rabbit hole?
Oh and I'm using Drupal 7
