Alternatively, a message can be provided to be displayed by the browser. Note that deciding whether the parameter is an URL, a path or a message is performed before any expression is parsed. This has several implications, the most important being that the client will not receive the original error status code, but instead will receive a redirect status code. This in turn can confuse web robots and other clients which try to determine if a URL is valid using the status code.
You must add the current path to the new rule. If it's possible to put your entire site's rewrite rules into the main. Don't let this throw you; with or without is functionally identical, on most servers. Essentially, try it without the full URL first, and if that doesn't work, sigh, and add it - maybe on your next host!
The latter, simpler form is preferable, if only for its tremendous portability it offers - my live site, and my development mirror htaccess rewrite address bar the exact same. By the way, it perhaps doesn't go without saying that if you want to disable rewriting inside a particular subfolder, where it is enabled further up the tree, simply do: RewriteEngine off cookies Lastly, a quick word about cookies.
While it's easy enough to set cookies in. For example, to check if the above cookie exists and has the correct value set, we could simply do. As with any RewriteCond, you can get pretty complex, checking multiple cookies, utilizing regexp and more, but that's enough to get you started.
You will probably want to add another RewriteCond to prevent looping on the I'll leave that as an exercise. While I'm at it, note, you can also set cookies with a RewriteRule. Set a cookie with this visitor's "Original Referer", using RewriteRule. The reason is because the captured colon ": It's a bit bug-like, but predictable.
Then it's down to business. It's generally best to hard-code in the domain name.
The RewriteRule, its simple dot ". The domain of the cookie is set to "corz. Note, it's best practice to use a preceding dot in "www"-less, or other sub-less domains.
The cookie will expire in approximately minutes 24 hours. Finally, having said ALL that, I'd still much rather use PHP sessions wherever possible, and if taking a chance on something more permanent, with a persistent cookie, php or similar is still a better place to be coding this sort of stuff.
You can create rules based not simply on the requested URL, but also on such things as IP address, browser agent send old browsers to different pages, for instanceand even the time of day; the possibilities are practically limitless.
If you have Apache installed on your system. That's where I got the cute quote for the top of the page, too. Once the browser has been redirected permanently to the wrong address, if you then go on to alter the wonky rule, your browser will still be redirected to the old address because it's a browser thingand you may even go on to fix, and then break the rule all over again without ever knowing it.
Changes to redirects can take a long time to show up in your browser.
When things aren't working, you may want to enable rewrite logging. If not, why not? Anyway, put this somewhere at the foot of your http. Expect large log files. Now your old RewriteLog directives will bring the server down.
Recent versions of Apache need this, instead.
A full explanation of the various LogLevel and trace options can be found here. Of course, there is no separate rewrite log now, so to get a readout of the rewrite logging, do something like at a terminal prompt on the server. All within a couple of seconds. Your rewrite log will be full of all your diagnostic information, and your server will carry on as before.
Setting a value of 1 gets you almost no information, setting the log level to 9 or trace8, from Apache 2. In the new scheme, trace: On the subject of new and improved Apache versions, if you are rolling your own server you may have noticed that your sites dramatically fail to load after an Apache upgrade.
Everything is "Forbidden", and you don't have permission to access, well anything. It's possible that your site's DocumentRoot points to a symlink. If that's the case, add this to your site's host probably vhost section:How do I do an htaccess rewrite on an internal URL without Google crawl giving me a soft error?

However, if I click any links in the site, drupal (I think) generates a url with the subdirectory in it, so they appear in the address bar.
Yet, I can take that same address, and just remove the subdirectory portion, and it loads the correct page.
I used mod-rewrite in. The Apache server’s mod_rewrite module gives you the ability to transparently redirect one URL to another, without the user’s knowledge. This opens up all sorts of possibilities, from simply redirecting old URLs to new addresses, to cleaning up the ‘dirty’ URLs coming from a poor publishing system — giving you URLs that are friendlier to both readers and search engines.
