Disable base domain redirect for FILE authentication

Customers ordering a HTTPS certificate for www.example.com and choosing FILE authentication need to allow the file to be accessible via the base domain without any redirection. For example the file should be placed at example.com/.well-known/pki-validation/ and NOT www.example.com/.well-known/pki-validation/

If you have a redirect set-up in htaccess from the base domain to the www domain you can add the below condition to your htaccess to disable the redirect for the pki-validation folder

 RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !\.well-known/pki-validation
