  == Introduction ==
  The Apache HTTPD Server deals with requests in discrete phases. While this is usually transparent
to the user and administrator it does have an effect on the behaviour of mod_rewrite when
rulesets are placed in different contexts. To oversimplify a little, when rules are placed
in !VirtualHost blocks (or in the main server context) they "run" before the server has yet
mapped the requested URI to a filesystem path. Conversely, when rules are placed in .htaccess
files, or in Directory blocks in the main server config, they "run" after this phase has occured.
