Subject Re: documentation/948: ServerPath doesn't work as excpected from the documentation.
Date Fri, 01 Aug 1997 03:29:45 GMT
I don't have the time to walk the user through this at all.  Should anyone
want to work out the full solution, you pretty much have to use
mod_rewrite. 

All stuff for www.foo.dom should have /www.foo.dom/ at the beginning of
the URL.  If a request from a Host:-client comes in to www.foo.dom, it
should be redirected to http://www.foo.dom/www.foo.dom/. 

RewriteRule ^/www.foo.dom	-		[L]
RewriteRule ^(.*)		/www.foo.dom$1	[L]

In this way you ensure that all valid urls for the site have /www.foo.dom
in them.  The rest is trivial.
