Subject [users@httpd] Redirection
Date Sun, 26 Jan 2003 14:30:22 GMT
the manual gives this example:

Alternatively, to temporarily redirect all pages on a site to one particular
page, use the following:

RedirectMatch temp .*

If is the same server where that directive is put then it will
create an infinite request loop.
I tried it on my windows pc and I put that directive inside an .htaccess,
the result is an infinite request loop.

In fact when the browser will ask for /startpage.html (because it was
redirected to) the rule .* matches it again.

I'm sure I was wrong,
so please help me to understand.
