Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

How can I set the rewrite base of the rewrite engine to

#access site via http://1.1.1.1/~sitename/
RewriteBase /~sitename/

when it's accessed via http://1.1.1.1/~sitename/ and set it to

#access site http://www.sitname.com
RewriteBase /

when it's accessed via www.sitname.com?

I'd like to have some sort of switch or condition. Because now when I set the RewriteBase to one of the options, the site is not functional when trying to access it with the other url.

EDIT: New site same problem.... so is this unsolvable?

Put it withing tags in you config. Something along the lines of the following might do:

<Directory /path/to/document/root>
    RewriteBase /
    ....
</DirectoryMatch>

<Directory /home/sitename>
    RewriteBase /~sitename
    ....
</DirectoryMatch>

For the ~sitename case you may want to place it in a .htaccess istead to more easily define it for different users.

If these are in different vhosts you also have to specify

RewriteEnging On

for both of them.

In fact this rule is in the .htaccess, also I can't get this to not create a server error. –  Moak Aug 12 '09 at 13:23
