Subject [users@httpd] Re: Question about mod_rewrite
Date Sun, 25 Feb 2007 18:28:31 GMT
Hi Olivier and httpd users !

Sorry for my delay of replying since my last post. Thanks Olivier
for your answer ! In my configuration, I use RewriteEngine
to on when I try to setup this configuration
I tried to change the RewriteRule from (.+) to .+
and to add [P] (In this case I needed to set up proxy pass
but the result is still the same

for this configuration:
        <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
                RewriteEngine On
                RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^http://incoming_web_site*\.html
                RewriteRule (.+)
                RewriteLog /usr/local/apache2052/logs/rewrite_vh9p.log
                RewriteLogLevel 9

the redirection seems to work, is written in my browser but
this brower tells me to activate cookies and in the access logfile, the attempt
is repeated 20 times.
On another machine, with the same operating system (FC4) and the same web server
(apache 2052), it works fine !

First, I supppose that's just a cut/paste mistake, but with
RewriteEngine set to Off, not much will happen.
Second, you might want to play with [P] flag to proxy the request.
Anyway, your last rule is strange: you might try:

RewriteRule  .* [P]

	Subject: [users@httpd] Question about mod_rewrite
	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 cookies...
	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
