.htaccess usage with Ver 5.5
« on: February 13, 2003, 06:29:01 PM »
Anybody sucessfully changed their Apache System to use .htaccess files to redirect? I tried a how-to that was published here, but it didn´t worked.
My version is e-smith 5.5.

Thanx Oliver

In that case... I installed that file too and I know for sure that part works. Are you sure your .htaccess file was all right and uploaded in the correct way?

Forgot to ask...

Why are you using .htaccess to redirect? php can do it too (and you don't have to install anything for it).

Problem is, that I want to catch access to non-existing directories and link them to another site. Any link inside a non-existing link should be forwarded too.
I don´t know how this should work with php. If anybody could tell me, you would make me happy.

Thanks

Ok, you wanna use .htaccess :)

I use this for error-handling:

#    "400 Bad request"
ErrorDocument 400 /400.html
#    "401 Authorization required"
ErrorDocument 401 /401.html
#    "403 Forbidden"
ErrorDocument 403 /403.html
#    "404 Not found"
ErrorDocument 404 /404.html
#    "500 Internal server error"
ErrorDocument 500 /500.html

Should work for you too... adjust to fit your needs

I´m sorry, but I don´t excatlly know what you mean with this. htaccess doesn´t seem to work at all. What privileges and owner do I need for the .htaccess-files? Maybe that is the problem. Mine have root as owner.

Thanks Oliver

you have to change the AllowOverride directive e.g. to All in the httpd.conf using the template method for the directories you want to use .htaccess
