Subject rewrite workaround for AcceptPathInfo
Date Wed, 24 Apr 2002 13:26:51 GMT
Hi, I posted some time ago about AcceptPathInfo appearing broken in apache2
, & submitted a bug report which is now resolved in as much as it is marked
'fixed in 2.0.36'

Until then I was hoping someone could give me a helping hand with a rewrite
replacement to provide the lookback feature of apache that existed until
apache2...

i.e. for a search-engine friendly page I have e.g.
somedomain.com/realpage.htm/var1/var2/etc/

apache 1.3.20+ used to 'lookback' to 'realpage.htm' and place
$var1,$var2,$etc into the $PATH_INFO server variable which I could then
parse to my hearts content.

how can I achieve the same or similar results with mod_rewrite ? I have
looked at the documentation and examples but my head hurts pretty soon
afterwards... I basically need to grab all the /var/var1/var2/ etc after the
valid page request 'realpage.htm' and place them in a server variable that I
can then call in my scripts

Any help much appreciated.
