Subject [users@httpd] internal rewrite puzzle
Date Fri, 27 Apr 2007 06:08:05 GMT
I'm trying to hide a cgi url behind a pretty one.  from what I've found in the 
archives, it may or may not be possible.

my rules are very simple and they satisfy my first requirement

                 RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
                 RewriteRule /(.*) /cgi-bin/akasha.cgi

and yes, I am redirecting to the cgi if a file does not exist for the given uri. 
  the 404 handler does not work since it appears to lose all form data.

The problem is that the rules reveal the rewritten url.  looking at the wire 
level traffic, I see that the response contains a Location header with the 
rewritten url.  injecting a new location header causes apache to fail with some 
sort of internal redirection error.  I'll reconstruct if it seems important.

any ideas on how to fix this problem?
