Interaction between mod_dir and mod_rewrite differs in Apache 2.2
One more Apache upgrade question:
In apache 1.3, a RewriteRule targeting index.html would work even if
index.html wasn't explicit in the URL, e.g.
RewriteRule index.html /weblog
would Rewrite a request for http://domain.com to
http://domain.com/weblog, so long as mod_dir was configured to use
index.html as a default page. Now, in Apache 2.2, it appears that the
above rule will only be triggered for the URL
http://domain.com/index.html, not for http://domain.com.
Thus, some of our old rewriterules are broken.
Has anyone experienced this? Any ideas how to fix it short of going into
all of users' .htaccess files and modifying the RewriteRules for them?
