in thread From php to perl + template solution

Why use mod_perl and not just mod_rewrite with soemthign like this:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f RewriteRule ^/?(.+) /cgi-bin/$1 [L,PT]
So every incoming html page request to the web server should redirect to cgi-bin/
Isn't it more easy?

My rule although seems correct thought aint working because when a request an html page a get its output instead of redirection

    oops - that was a typo. I meant "mod_rewrite", not "mod_perl".

    I'd try something like this (untested):

    # skip rule if item is an actual file or directory # (like images or stylesheets) RewriteCond %{SCRIPT_FILENAME} !-d RewriteRule ^(.*)/?$ /cgi-bin/$1 [L,QSA]

    Your script can get the $1 parameter from $ENV{PATH_INFO}, and use that to determine which template file to use, etc.

      Thank you but for soem reason no matter 2 days now every mod_rewrite rule i try it just seem to NOT work.
      Fro example i try to see if it will display the html print or redirect end every time it just display a hello i made. I dont know why.

      I do know though that .htaccess inside document root does get read because if i put random stuff in it and i try the above url it produces an internal server error

      Any clues?

        This is a Perl forum, mod_rewrite is an apache module. If as you say "every" rule you try doesn't work have you considered reading the documentation, any of the mod_rewrite tutorials which are online to try to work out what you are doing wrong?
