I found part of the problem, but not how to solve it.

When configured as such:

RewriteCond  %{HTTP_HOST}   ^$
RewriteRule   ^(.*)$  /home/user/public_html/siteA/$1 [L]

Apache is returning a 500 error.. the error_log shows:

"mod_rewrite: maximum number of internal redirects reached. Assuming
configuration error. Use 'RewriteOptions MaxRedirects' to increase the limit
if neccessary."

I also found the httpd.conf on the server, and it doesn't seem to be doing
any other mod_rewrite stuff.

Why is it going into a recursive loop?
