Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 51969] RewriteBase documentation
Date Tue, 10 Apr 2012 20:59:32 GMT

--- Comment #4 from Filipus Klutiero <> 2012-04-10 20:59:32 UTC ---
Thank you very much.

I suggest the following to be even clearer:

Change the description to "Sets the base URL for relative rewrites (in
per-directory context)"

Change the second paragraph to:

This directive is required when using a relative path in a substitution in
per-directory (htaccess) context, except in the following cases:

    The original and new URI-s are reached via the main document tree (as
opposed to reached by other means, such as Alias). This requires the affected
directory to be in the DocumentRoot.
    Very rarely, relative rewrite rules should redirect to a URL path formed by
the concatenation - first - of the filesystem path to the directory containing
relative rewrite rules and - second - of the substitution.

However, I'm not sure the second case should be kept. It seems so unlikely that
I can't come up with a plausible example.
