So I asked the question below on stackoverflow.com and serverfault.com and got NO responses. Maybe someone here is better :)
I have an apache server running on an embedded device that serves webpages to clients using a bunch of custom modules.
I'm now trying to load some webpages from the device using [127.0.0.1
These pages don't need any of the custom modules since they don't use any of their processing.
The problem is apache still runs through all the modules when loading the page and this causes the page to load very slowly even though it's coming from the local filesystem. I've tried using file: to retrieve the pages but then some pages don't display correctly because we are using jquery.
All the pages that don't need the modules are in a specific directory "foo" under the 'DocumentRoot'
I've tried putting checks in all the modules to disable the processing but it's still isn't good enough because it still runs through the modules.
Is there a way for me to add another module that makes a check and then stops all the rest from running?
Can this be done with AddHandler/RemoveHandler, mod_rewrite?
and that didn't work.
Can I make these files have a different extension like .fhtml and use that?
We're running Apache/2.2.22 (Unix)
