Hi. Using default RedHat 8 install. Not sure what I'm not doing correctly but I can't get even the simplest rewrite rule to work. I'm placing a .htaccess file one level deeper than my home directory. So the physical web root is: /home/cparker/public_html/ (same as www.domain.com/~cparker/) I'm putting the file here: /home/cparker/public_html/oop/ (same as www.domain.com/~cparker/oop/) Here are the contents of this file so far. RewriteEngine On RewriteBase /~cparker/oop/ RewriteRule ^x$ detail.php?id=atitcb I'm expecting this rule to match: www.domain.com/~cparker/oop/x and turn it into: www.domain.com/~cparker/oop/detail.php?id=atitcb But it doesn't work. :( Anyone see what's going wrong? Chris.
