Subject [users@httpd] Mod rewrite - can it tell if a requested file exists
Date Fri, 08 Feb 2008 06:47:52 GMT
Apache 2.2


I know it is possible to chain mod rewrite rules.  Is it possible with
mod rewrite to test for the existence of a requested file?  




Requested URL:


Sudo Code:


If the URL matches /abc/* 

  Then rewrite the URL to /zzz/abc/123

    if the file exists then done (leave the requested file as

    else if it does not exist

     then rewrite the URL to /xxx/abc/123 then done


Is this possible?  If not then how could you do this as fast as possible
without creating a mod for apache?
