Subject [users@httpd] Can you go outside the .htaccess directory with Rewrite Rule?
Date Fri, 27 Feb 2009 21:27:43 GMT
If I put a .htaccess file in my webroot with the following rule:
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /cgi-bin/scriptname.cgi?action=$1

Can I specify a script file outside the directory with the .htaccess  
file in it (i.e. outside the webroot)?

/home/myname/public_html/.htaccess (see above)
/home/myname/cgi-bin/scriptname.cgi (I want to call this script via  
the above rule)

Thank you!!
