I don't understand why it worked beforehand with my insecure RewriteRule.
Also in my opinion mod_rewrite should/does not change the path, it just 
makes it appear different!?

For example, when I call "" it works, but 
"" it does not work. Rewriting looks like this now:

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.samy\.domain\.de
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?([a-z0-9-]+)\.samy\.domain\.de
RewriteRule (.*) %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/%2/$1 [L]

Why does this break relative paths?
