This seems like it should be an easy problem, but I'm stumped on it.
I'm on apache 2.2.8
I have "/" mounted to tomcat via mod_jk so most things go to tomcat.
I have /blog unmounted and it is served by wordpress with the standard .htaccess file in the blog directory for nice permalinks.
What I want to do is map a simple URL to a certain blog page:
http://www.mysite.com/foo -> http://www.mysite.com/blog/foo-page-long-name
I would rather have an internal redirect / rewrite so that I'm not doing a browser redirect, and so the page stays as http://www.mysite.com/foo in the browser.
I've tried lots of different things and nothing seems to be working. Some things get me to wordpress, but then I get a 404 from wordpress.
A browser redirect works, but I'd rather not use this solution.
RewriteRule ^/foo /blog/foo-page-long-name [L,R-301]
These get me into the blog, but I get a 404 from wordpress. I don't know what URI wordpress is actually seeing to give me that 404
RewriteRule ^/foo /blog/foo-page-long-name
RewriteRule ^/foo /blog/foo-page-long-name [L]
RewriteRule ^/foo /blog/foo-page-long-name [PT]
I would be grateful for any ideas or suggestions.
