    I have problem with generated by phpBB3 SEO mod .htaccess files - they're not working :(

    By default the .htaccess file look something like this:

    Code:
    # Lines That should already be in your .htacess
    <Files "config.php">
    Order Allow,Deny
    Deny from All
    </Files>
    <Files "common.php">
    Order Allow,Deny
    Deny from All
    </Files>
    
    # You may need to un-comment the following lines
    # Options +FollowSymlinks
    # To make sure that rewritten dir or file (/|.html) will not load dir.php in case it exist
    # Options -MultiViews
    # REMEBER YOU ONLY NEED TO START MOD REWRITE ONCE
    RewriteEngine On
    # REWRITE BASE
    RewriteBase /
    # HERE IS A GOOD PLACE TO FORCE CANONICAL DOMAIN
    # RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^mysite\.org$ [NC]
    # RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://mysite.org/$1 [QSA,L,R=301]
    
    # DO NOT GO FURTHER IF THE REQUESTED FILE / DIR DOES EXISTS
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule . - [L]

    .htacces files are generated by script depending on chosen options.

    Maybe someone could tell which line may not work on litespeed ?? On Apache everything works fine.
    I don't have access to logs - problem occurs in shared hosting environment.

    Sorry for my english :)

    You should ask your host to help with this, they should be able to enable rewrite log by adding "RewriteLogLevel 9" to your vhost configuration, then check rewrite log in error log file, that's the easiest way to find out the rewrite rule causing problem.

    mod_rewrite htaccess phpbb3 SEO problem

    Hi,

    Im trying to add a bunch of rewrite rules for a particular domain to the apache httpd.conf file. There are too many rewrite rules to place them in an .htaccess file because it would be too heavy on the server for each page load.

    What would be the best way to do this? Thanks in advance
