shtml include and mod_rewrite


shtml include and mod_rewrite

Postby sudobash » Wed Feb 03, 2010 2:44 pm

I have a rather interesting question. Is there a way we can have virtual includes embedded in an shtml page can be translated by mod_rewrite to proxy from a different site.


page.shtml comprises

<-- #include virtual="/cgi-bin/abc.cgi" -->

However I don't want to have the abc.cgi executed in the same webserver.

Hence I tried following rewrite

RewriteRule /cgi-bin/abc.cgi [L,P]

The above only works when the URI accessed directly but not from shtml page.

Any idea why sub requests within shtml page are not picked up by rewrite?
