Subject [users@httpd] mod_rewrite internal redirect problem
Date Fri, 16 Sep 2005 16:09:18 GMT
I have a RewriteRule to change plain html-type URL to a PHP script that
dyanamically plugs in the content.  It looks like this...

Alias /myalias "C:/path/to/htdocs"

<Directory "C:/path/to/htdocs">
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /myalias
    RewriteRule ^(.*)\.html$ page_processor.php?page_requested=$1 [L]

Turned up the RewriteLogLevel (to 3) to see what's going on.  It seems to do
the rewrite correctly, but then does an internal redirect and drops the added
query parameter.  I've read the mod_rewrite docs and URL Rewriting Guide and I
have tinkered with it quite a bit.

I goal is to have the rewritten URL be
page_processor.php?page_reqested=directory/file, but I end up with only page
page_processor.php.  Please see below.

Thanks, Todd.

Here's the log snippet.  I removed some junk (IP Addr, Date, Time, etc) for
