    I am in the process of reconfiguring a Wordpress site on IIS that had several problems, and I believe that the problems are rlated to functionality of some plugins. I will be setting up the site on a Windows server 2019 machine. The plugin in question creates a .Well-known directory and I know that directories that start with a dot are not allowed by default. I have other iis modules installed (particularly Certify the Web), that also use these directories. Is there a singular step I can do so that I don't have to modify the configuration for every single instance of this? Or is there an easier way of doing this? I understand the idea of not allowing dot-beginning directories, but there should be some sort of easy method to override this without each person having to develop their own extension. After all, Nginx and Apache allow this by default. Maybe an open source handler for this stuff might not be the worst idea in the world ... Thanks for anything you can offer.
