I'm having a problem running Apache 2.2.20 on a Linux Mint distro.
I've got the following rule in my .htaccess file:
RewriteEngine on RewriteRule old1/old2 http://localhost/new1 [P]
When I browse to
http://localhost/old1/old2 I just get a redirect to
localhost/new1, that is, the new URL shows in the address bar. I want the "old1/old2" URL to show (with the page content from /new1). What am I doing wrong?
I've installed mod_proxy and mod_proxy_http (i.e. "a3enmod proxy", "a2enmod proxy_http").
Many thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
