well guys I'm banging my head on the table understanding this mod-rewrite and yes i did read the tutorial and tried to implement it.but I'm using this vbseo program and it has alot of stuff that through me off for the mod-rewrite rules.

Is there another way of understanding this for a novice person


here is an example of re-write

Quote:
# Comment the following line (add '#' at the beginning)
# to disable mod_rewrite functions.
# Please note: you still need to disable the hack in
# the vBSEO control panel to stop url rewrites.
RewriteEngine On

# Some servers require the Rewritebase directive to be
# enabled (remove '#' at the beginning to activate)
# Please note: when enabled, you must include the path
# to your root vB folder (i.e. RewriteBase /forums)
#RewriteBase /

#RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.yourdomain\.com
#RewriteRule (.*) http://www.yourdomain.com/forums/$1 [L,R=301]

RewriteRule ^((urllist|sitemap_).*\.(xml|txt)(\.gz)?)$ vbseo_sitemap/vbseo_getsitemap.php?sitemap=$1 [L]

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} !vbseourl=
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(admincp/|modcp/|chat|cron)
RewriteRule ^(.*\.php)$ vbseo.php?vbseourl=$1 [L,QSA]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !\.(jpg|gif)$
RewriteRule ^(archive/.*)$ vbseo.php?vbseourl=$1 [L,QSA]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !^(admincp|modcp|clientscript|cpstyles|images)/
RewriteRule ^(.+)$ vbseo.php?vbseourl=$1 [L,QSA]



i think i have the http_Host part done but the other rest I'm stuck on it.HELP please

Isn't this Apache? Abyss uses URL rewriting from the panel, right...?

puertoblack2003, are you asking how to convert these mod-rewrite directives into Abyss' URL rewriting scheme?

One quick question: where is the forum located? Is it in the root folder of the website? I'm going to assume so.

Code:
RewriteRule ^((urllist|sitemap_).*\.(xml|txt)(\.gz)?)$ vbseo_sitemap/vbseo_getsitemap.php?sitemap=$1 [L]

This one would translate as follows:

Virtual Path Regular Expression:
Code:
^/(urllist|sitemap_)(.*)(.)(xml|txt|gz)$

Case sensitive: un-checked
If this rule matches: Perform an internal redirection
Redirect to:
Code:
/vbseo_sitemap/vbseo_getsitemap.php?sitemap=$2

Append query string: doesn't matter
Escape redirection location: checked
Next Action: stop matching

The HTTP_HOST part (as you call it ;-) ) is commented (preceded with #) so it is not actually used by the original configuration and you can safely ignore it.

If you'd to include it:
* the virtual path regular expression will be (.*)
* the condition will be "variable HTTP_HOST is not equal to www.yourdomain.com"
* Action: perform external redirection to
* Redirect to: http://www.yourdomain.com/forums/$1
* Status code: 301
* Next action: stop matching
