Subject [users@httpd] Checking if file or directory exist
Date Wed, 10 Sep 2008 15:54:10 GMT
Hello everyone,

So I'm still fighting with mod_rewrite a little but I have made  
progress... Basically, what I am looking to do now, is check to see if  
a file/folder exists and if not rewrite and give control to my p.php  
script to look it up in the database.

Here are the rules that I'm using:

		RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
                 RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
                 RewriteRule . /p.php [L]

Now, that part works just fine, but what I can't seem to work out is  
the sublinks. I have some links that look like this: HTTP://

  Now mail.php exists and so it should NOT be rewriting, but it is...  
Basically... If someone goes to mail.php?purl=jasonpruim112 I want  
mail.php to handle the request... Am I making sense?

Anyone have any clue what I need to do?

Thanks for looking!
