Subject [users@httpd] mod_cache bypass homedir, any solution?
Date Sat, 21 Mar 2009 00:50:40 GMT

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^([^\.*])$
RewriteCond "%{DOCUMENT_ROOT}%{REQUEST_URI}/index.html" -f
RewriteRule "^(.*)$" "$1\/index.html" [NC,L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^([^\.*])$
RewriteCond "%{DOCUMENT_ROOT}%{REQUEST_URI}/index.php" -f
RewriteRule "^(.*)$" "$1\/index.php" [NC,L]

httpd and still does not work.

Thank you in advance for your support
