Ignore directory....

Using mod_rewrite to handle various content issues

Ignore directory....

Postby bubbagump » Tue Apr 08, 2008 11:28 am

I am using the Zend framework with requires a Rewrite rule to send everything to index.php. Fine. I have that working. However, I also have a blog on my site which needs to have this redirect disabled. My current rewrite rule looks like:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule !\.(js|ico|gif|jpg|png|css|pdf|swf|flv)$ /index.php
RewriteRule (feed|media|files).*(gif|jpg|png|pdf)$ /index.php

And I want to prevent rewrites from happening when I go to /documentroot/blog

How do I create this exception? I already tried

<Directory /documentroot/blog>
RewriteEngine off

and that breaks the original rewrite rule by creating a loop.

To make matters worse, my boss wants pretty URLs to work on the /blog subdirectory.

Any ideas?
