I've the most recent version of apache2 placed on my vm.
I triggered the mod_rewrite by doing :
a2enmod rewrite /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
Now I simply examined just a little rule but it doesn't work. I've got a .htacess as well as an index.htmlon this site root. The .htaccess consists of :
Options +FollowSymLinks Options +Indexes RewriteEngine On RewriteBase / RewriteRule ^index.bla$ index.html [L]
However when Time passes to my_vm_ip/index.bla I do not see index.html but a 404 error !
Does anybody have idea exactly what the problem might be?
you most likely meant
^index\.bla$ and when you decide to go straight to my_vm_ip/index.html would you begin to see the page? otherwise you most likely are missing the privileges for that file
