I do that - except the docs are written by an expert, & he/she expects the 
end user to be an expert.
(not enough explanations)

Ive got that module...

Ok - Ive edited my HOSTS file on my win 98, so that goes to my server website (not the main 24/7 live 

This works - I now see the HTML of the website on my Apache server - Main 
website (My PC not an internet live seever)

Now - I WANT :-

when someone goes to - I want a CGI script to be activated

eg (its only on my PC now - 
not the main server as yet)

Yes - Ive checked the logs & the docs

Ive got these two lines in the httpd.conf & re-booted :-

RewriteLog "/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/logs/rewrite.log"
RewriteLogLevel 9

As yet - when I go to http// - it still shows the main 
HTML page - Not the CGI script.

The actual rewrite codes ive got in my .htaccess file is :-
(not including the dotted lines)

Options +Includes

RewriteEngine On
Options +FollowSymlinks
RewriteBase /

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !cgi-bin/groups/view.cgi
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ cgi-bin/groups/view.cgi [L]

Ps - Ive checked the rewrite log file - NOTHING is shown there (but the 
server does create one)
Even though its level 9 - Which should log MOST / ALL the errors/warnings 
in rewriting codes)

does that make sense ?
