comment Directory agnostic Apache mod_rewrite rule for web applications
Thanks for the answer, but if I have no RewriteBase I get The requested URL /~user/webapp/customers was not found on this server. when I visit http://server.domain.com/~user/webapp/customers. Permissions are correct because if I add .php to the end the script runs OK.

comment Directory agnostic Apache mod_rewrite rule for web applications
Hi Shane: The install directory because I'd like end users to be able to install the application in whatever dir they like, so it could be /var/www/html/ or /home/user/public_html but obviously the RewriteBase would need to work for both. I've tried using RewriteBase / which works if the application is in /var/www/html/ but not when placed in /home/user/public_html.

comment One Apache Redirect, Multiple Exceptions
Hi SmallClanger, thanks for that. Under ordinary circumstances that sounds like a good solution. However we have a bit of a totalitarian sysadmin who won't allow us to use mod_rewrite. The other problem is that the path structure is different on the two websites and the old files can't be moved to the new website (for various political reasons I won't go into). Thanks for your help and that useful link :)
