Subject [users@httpd] Question about mod_rewrite
Date Wed, 14 Feb 2007 07:12:37 GMT

I need help and advices about using mod_rewrite

I have some pdf files on my web site
A foreign web site has stored these pdf file on a html file on this foreign
web site
I would like to redirect its requests to another page

so I wrote:
        <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
                RewriteEngine Off
                RewriteCond  %{HTTP_REFERER}
                RewriteRule  (.+)

But it doesn't work ! When the foreign web site tries to access , the
redirection begins but doesn't finish.
in the access log of my web site, the access is repeated 20 times with a 302
number for the redirect
On IE, an error message is returned, on firefox, it tells me to check the

However I tested this configuration on the same apache server (2.0.52) on
another machine and the redirection
works well and it succeded

I tried to specify the redirection code 302 or 301 in the append flag R but
it is the same

Thanks for your help
