Subject [users@httpd] ReWrite woes
Date Wed, 14 Jan 2009 19:13:51 GMT
I cannot get mod_rewrite to work. 
I have enabled it through 'sudo a2enmod rewrite'.

Under /mods-enabled/ there is 'rewrite.load'
LoadModule rewrite_module /usr/lib/apache2/modules/

Here is a snippet of my /sites-enabled/ file

<VirtualHost *>
	ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
	DocumentRoot /var/www/
	<Directory />
		Options FollowSymLinks
		AllowOverride None
	<Directory /var/www/>
		Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
		AllowOverride None
		Order allow,deny
		allow from all
		# This directive allows us to have apache2's default start page
                # in /apache2-default/, but still have / go to the right place
                #RedirectMatch ^/$ /apache2-default/
		RewriteRule ^/bob$ /temp1/temp1/temp2

under /var/www/ I have temp1/temp1/temp2 directories set up just to try
and test this.

I've tried putting the rewrite rule just under the virtual host, in
a .htaccess file, in the httpd.conf. Nothing works.

grepping the access.log and error.log for '[Rr]ewrite' produces no
results. There are no mod_rewrite logs.

It looks to me like the module is never actually getting loaded. But who

I am completely frustrated and lost, any suggestions????

Thanks for any insight!
