404 Error Serving a /libraries page in Drupal 8

It took some time to figure out why I kept seeing a 404 error (page not found) on http://www.mysite.com/libraries. The issue seemed to only present itself on our Acquia environments. Ultimately I realized that there was a conflict due to having a “libraries” directory in the document root of the site (e.g., /docroot/libraries).

It was a quick fix after realizing the cause of the problem; I added this to my .htaccess file, above the other index.php rewrite rules.

The reason this wasn’t happening on my local machine is because I’m using nginx locally for this particular website; the .htaccess file isn’t used.
