Subject [users@httpd] rewrite not working inside alias
Date Wed, 11 Nov 2009 11:15:31 GMT
Hello list,

I am running debian lenny box with apache2 and mod_rewrite enabled.  I
confirm that rewrite rules are working well with the default /var/www 
directory which is my document root.   I have one more  config with
alias like

 Alias /personal/joydeep  /var/personal_work_area/joydeep

DocumentRoot  /var/personal_work_area/

        <Directory /var/personal_work_area/joydeep/>
                 DirectoryIndex index.php
                Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
                AllowOverride All
                Order allow,deny
                allow from all

and the .htaccess is as below

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^alice.html$ bob.html

the page bob.html works fine. But when I visit alice.html  as
it reports

The requested URL /index.php was not found on this server.

Though the same thing work well under /var/www .  I am really confused
here. Could any one please enlighten me ? any mistake ?

Thanks for bearing with me.
