|RewriteRule not executed|
| 11:08 pm on Oct 19, 2006 (gmt 0)|
I am trying to use mod_rewrite for the first time and am having no success
When I enter the url http://www.example.com/some-data.html I go to that file instead of http://www.example.com/some-more-data.html that I am hopeing to see.
RewriteRule ^some-data\.html$ some-more-data.html
Allow from all
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin /usr/local/www/vhosts/example.com/cgi-bin
Allow from all
No error messages and no clues when I restart apache. the url rewrite just doesn't happen.
Thanks for any help you can give.

In order to match, your RewriteRule pattern will need a leading slash.

I added the leading slash and that didn't change the result.
Next I added the leading slash to the destination url and this didn't change the result either.
Could you offer another possiblity that I could try?

You'll need AllowOverride Options (at a minimum), followed by either Options FollowSymLinks or Options SymLinksIfOwnerMatch, in the vHost container itself, before the RewriteEngine on directive.
If you get a server error, you should check your server error log, as it will likely tell you what the problem is.
