[wp-hackers] Calling WordPress functions on a non-WordPress page

You probably need to put a .htaccess file in that directory that tells 
Apache that the default for mysite.com/test/ is to visit the index.php 
file. That's not necessarily standard. It is probably looking for an 
index.htm or index.html file, not index.php, hence the 404 error.

Having not looked into it fully, I'm not sure exactly what the 
.htaccess syntax would be for that, but maybe that gives you something 
to go on?
