Subject [users@httpd] mod_rewrite nocase loop problem
Date Mon, 05 Mar 2007 16:49:20 GMT
We have this working URL:

    http://example.org/BAR/

We would like to make the path portion of the URL case insensitive, so
that the following:

    http://example.org/bar/
    http://example.org/Bar/
    http://example.org/bAr/

Would all go back to the original URL. Using mod_rewrite, I tried applying
the following rule:

    RewriteRule ^/bar/$ /BAR/ [R=301,L,nocase]

But that creates a redirect loop that the browser barfs on. The browser itself says this:

    The page isn't redirecting properly

    Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this
    address in a way that will never complete.

    * This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

And the logs show this:

    111.222.333.444 - - [05/Mar/2007:11:39:55 -0500] "GET /bar/ HTTP/1.1" 301 352
    111.222.333.444 - - [05/Mar/2007:11:39:55 -0500] "GET /BAR/ HTTP/1.1" 301 352
    111.222.333.444 - - [05/Mar/2007:11:39:55 -0500] "GET /BAR/ HTTP/1.1" 301 352
    111.222.333.444 - - [05/Mar/2007:11:39:55 -0500] "GET /BAR/ HTTP/1.1" 301 352
    111.222.333.444 - - [05/Mar/2007:11:39:55 -0500] "GET /BAR/ HTTP/1.1" 301 352
    ...

I sort of see why the loop is happening, but it is my understanding that
the L flag would cause it to stop.

Any help on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

thanks,
Thomas
