mod_rewrite and alias or directories

This entry was posted by on Tuesday, 20 January, 2009 at

I have been trying around and i think i got it figuted out why mod_rewrite ignored the directives i gave for a directory. The simplified vhost file should explain

DocumentRoot d:\Sites\app1

RewriteEngine on
RewriteLog logs/mod_rewrite.log
RewriteLogLevel 0

Alias /app2 “d:\Sites\eparcelroot\pages\eParcel”
<Directory d:\Sites\approot\pages\app2>

Options Indexes MultiViews FollowSymLinks
# without FollowSymLinks mod_rewrite does nothing in the direcotry

AllowOverride All
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

RewriteBase /app2
# without RewriteBase you’ll be stuck in the documentroot

RewriteCond   %{THE_REQUEST}   /download/
RewriteRule    download.php/(.*)/(.*)   download.php?id=$1&file=$2 [nocase,last]
