Subject [users@httpd] Rewriting HTTP_HOST to directories
Date Fri, 10 Feb 2006 20:21:54 GMT
Good afternoon,

    After reading through the mod_rewrite and rewrite guide docs and 
tinkering with things a bit, I have to admit I'm still in the dark. Here 
is what I'm attempting to do:

I'm setting up service to offer domain names to users on a free web 
hosting service. Currently, when a user signs up with the free service, 
they receive a subdirectory on our site, in the form of 
/var/www/html/ As doing virtual hosts for all the 
potential users is impractical, and the mass virtual hosting can't 
translate into this directory structure, I'd like to use a RewriteMap to 
translate domains to these directories, e.g.   /var/www/html/

Can someone provide me with a bit of help as to how to accomplish this?

Thank you,
