.htaccess mod_rewrite woes

Hi All,

I just cane$B!Ge(Bt seem to get redirects going in
Radiante$B!Ge(Bs .htaccess. Can someone enlighten me?

In the default .htaccess file after RewriteEngine On (shich should be
after the Options at the top btw) I tried these vavriants

 RewriteRule from.html to.html

 RewriteRule from.html http://domain/to.html [R=301,L]

 RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/from\.html
 RewriteRule .* http://domain.com/to.html [R=301,L]

which all work on another domain on this server. Nothing happens. I
also tried adding the example e$B!Fe(Btell Rails to ignore thise$B!Ge(B
rules, but Ie$B!Ge(Bm probably doing it wrong.

 RewriteRule from.html to.html
 RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/to\.html
 RewriteRule .* - [L]

Any ideas? I actually want to redirect one file and map it to a
subdomain (eg http://domain.com/test to http://test.domain.com/), but
I cane$B!Ge(Bt even get simple file redirection going. Finally
Ie$B!Ge(Bd like to know if ite$B!Ge(Bs possible to use .htaccess to
generate canonical URLs. Specifically I want http://domain.com/ to
redirect to http://www.domain.com/, and all trailing slashes to be
stripped eg http://www.domain.com/news/ to http://www.domain.com/news

Thanks for your time

peace - oli

PS This is using Radiant 0.6.6, the last version that supports the
gettext interface localization plugin Ie$B!Ge(Bm using. Btw what needs
to be done to resurrect jargone$B!Ge(Bs gibberish i18n support?
I cane$B!Ge(Bt even get jargon to install atm

Could it be that the Apache VirtualHost for the site isn’t allowing
.htaccess overrides? Your httpd.conf file should have a VirtualHost
looking something like this:

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName PROJECT.com
DocumentRoot /Users/dave/Sites/PROJECT
<Directory “/Users/dave/Sites/PROJECT.com”>
### ensure mod-rewrite by turning off MultiViews and
### allowing .htaccess override to set rewrite rules
Options FollowSymLinks -Indexes -MultiViews
AllowOverride All
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
