Subject RE: [users@httpd] .htaccess and hotlinking question/problem
Date Mon, 24 Dec 2007 07:30:49 GMT
>>From what I can figure out now, mod-rewrite is not installed. Now when I
type in www.mysite.com/download/myfile.avi in my browser I get a server
error.  There is nothing in my httpd.conf about mod_rewrite, nor can I find
any files pertaining to it. This serves my purpose as it does stop the
direct downloading of files, it's just not pretty and would be nice if it
worked properly. Just so you know where I am coming from, I did not even
know what mod_rewite was until a few days ago. If there is another way to
test to see if it is installed, please let me know. I am not a guru on this
stuff, just know enough to get by. 

Thanks
