Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache Rewrite (mod_rewrite) cannot rewrite, if directory name is lib, var, etc, on Linux

Wow, it worked! Amazing!

The use of [PT] should be included in almost every tutorial and examples of
Apache Rewrite.

Most tutorials I have read use URI, not absolute paths. They all should add
[PT] to avoid such issues and to reduce time wasted on checking file system

Thank you! Your solution is awesome!

Best Regards,
