Description Francesco Russo 2002-06-11 13:01:17 UTC
[Previous ref: PR 10090 - Pablo Delgado -] 

I compiled Apache 2.036 using:
./configure --with-mpm=worker \
--enable-access \
--enable-alias \
--enable-auth \
--enable-cgi \
--enable-rewrite \
--disable-actions \
--disable-cgid \
--disable-asis \
--disable-auth_anon \
--disable-autoindex \
--disable-env \
--disable-imap \
--disable-include \
--disable-isapi \
--disable-status \

make install

Then I configured a Virtual Host like this:

<VirtualHost 123.123.123>
RewriteEngine on
RewriteMap random rnd:/home/httpd/randomrew.txt
RewriteRule ^/testrnd/index.html$  http://${random:tot1} [R]

'randomrew.txt' contains:
tot1 www.site1.com/|www.site2.com/|www.site3.com/

Only happen the redirect to 'www.site1.com' [the first in the list].

The same rewrite worked without any problem in all Apache 1.3.1x versions.

This has now been fixed.  We just missed the cutoff for 2.0.37, so expect the
fix in 2.0.38.  For now, you can use this small patch to mod_rewrite:


Thanks for your report, and thanks for using Apache!
