Help with mod_rewrite and rewritemap

Post by bern » Wed, 12 Sep 2001 17:58:28

My site has some filenames with 2 or more spaces.
Some search engines substitute them with some + but in this way their
request can't reach the pages.
I am trying to use mod_rewrite to change the request substituting the
filename with + with the filename with %20.
I am trying to use a rewrite map but I'm not able to make it work.
This is what I wrote in the httpd.conf:

Rewri*gine On
RewriteLog "/home/mhd/rewrite.log"
RewriteLogLevel 9
RewriteMap berno     txt:/home/mhd/map.txt
RewriteRule ^/home/mhd/prova/*)

In the map I put only a trial substitution such as:
pippo+prova.html   pippo%20prova.html

The log gave me this report:

init rewrite engine with requested uri /default.ida
applying pattern '^/home/mhd/prova/*)' to uri
pass through /default.ida

What is my mistake ?

2. Map words from a flat text file and redirect to http:// or local
test file
3. If keyword is not found(matched) then no rewriting is done.


Example scenario:

Person clicks link on referring page:

This links to my page:

Hits my .htaccess (or httpd.conf virtualhost)

in my  keymap file:



I tried this, but it does not function:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteMap keymap txt:/www/keyword.txt
RewriteRule ^/([^/]+)(.*)$ ${keymap:$1}

keyword.txt is there, apache starts with no errors.

keyword.txt contains:
