Subject RE: [users@httpd] internal redirects in httpd.conf
Date Sat, 09 Feb 2013 03:19:38 GMT
I care because I have to test again at the top of the rules for the rewritten URIs to say "ok
their fine now, get out", or they get screwed up by the re-evluation of the same rules for
some instances.  

I have read further that I need to place the rules inside a <VirtualHost> to prevent
this, I used a <Directory.... to my discredit.

Unless, this is just a big waste of time, and I should leave it alone and just add my catch
rules at the top.

I'm fairly new to rewrites so I want to be sure I'm doing it right before adding dozens of
new rules.

Every rewrite is an internal redirect in htaccess.  Other features of
the server also use internal redirects.  Why do you care?
