I am trying to set up a “proxy throughput” rule using mod_rewrite. My specific intent is to provide access to one of my Gallery2 albums without publishing the actual location of my album.
So I created my directory for anonymous access, something like this:
and then put this in the .htaccess file.
RewriteRule ^.*$ http://gallery.mydhdomain.com/v/ebay_photos/ [P]
It doesn’t work. I see the following in my error log:
File does not exist: proxy:http://gallery.mydhdomain.com/v/ebay_photos/
What’s the problem? Does this feature require that a proxy server be running? Or is something else going on?
