Look at mod_rewrite, it will do exactly what you want:


This guide even includes an example paralleling your need:




1. Apache SSI and <Directory> vs <Directory Match>

I am attempting to have apache process my SSI directives in executable
files (err, XBitHack on)

Apache works as expected, if I set up my directory this way:

<DirectoryMatch /var/www >
    Options  Includes
    AllowOverride None

However, if I use this:

<Directory /var/www >
    Options  Includes
    AllowOverride None

The server side includes stop working.  I am really confused here.  The
file I am trying to serve is /var/www/test.html.  My root directory is
pointed to /var/www.

Can anyone explain this to me?
