Thanks for your patience, i've read the page at

now is more clear to me the meaning of hooks and priority and i've
been able to change the uri value and see correct effects.

BUT, now i've got one more question :-)

why if i call the handler from a translate_name hook the

ap_hook_translate_name(kcache_handler, NULL, succ, APR_HOOK_MIDDLE);

the r->handler value is NULL?

is because the handler is evaluated only when there is an ap_hook_handler?

i'm enabling my module with a Location directive:

    <Location /data>
    SetHandler kcache

and i want to control the execution of the module with an initial check:

if (!r->handler || strcmp(r->handler, "kcache")) return (DECLINED);

but r->handler is null if the hook is called in ap_hook_translate_name
state, so how can i check this condition?
