Is it possible to do a redirect which redirects

http://www.sitename.tld/stats

to

http://another.server.tld/cgi-bin/awstats.pl?config=www.sitename.tld

I think you see what i want to do here?

Sure,

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^/stats$ http://another.server.tld/cgi-bin/awstats.pl?config=www.sitename.tld [R,L]

Eventually you could pass dynamically your host into the URL

RewriteRule ^/stats$ http://another.server.tld/cgi-bin/awstats.pl?config=%{SERVER_NAME}[R,L]

Hm, i did

RewriteRule ^/stats$ http://scooter.mupp.net/cgi-bin/awstats.pl?config=%{SERVER_NAME}[R,L]

And i get

[Thu Oct 14 23:18:20 2004] [error] [client 81.226.214.134] File does not exist: /var/www/www.tallaksen.net/stats/

And as you can see i seem to have the module

scooter:~# grep -i rewrite /etc/apache/httpd.conf
LoadModule rewrite_module /usr/lib/apache/1.3/mod_rewrite.so
RewriteRule ^/stats$ http://scooter.mupp.net/cgi-bin/awstats.pl?config=%{SERVER_NAME}[R,L]
scooter:~# ls /usr/lib/apache/1.3/mod_r
mod_rewrite.so  mod_roaming.so

And i did restart the server.

Ok, i modified it abit
scooter:/var/log# grep -i rewrite /etc/apache/httpd.conf
LoadModule rewrite_module /usr/lib/apache/1.3/mod_rewrite.so
RewriteEngine On
RewriteLog /var/log/server.rewrite.txt
RewriteLogLevel 1
RewriteRule ^/stats$ http://scooter.mupp.net/cgi-bin/awstats.pl?config=%{SERVER_NAME}[R,L]
scooter:/var/log#

Still no go, and nothing in the log.

AS you pasted the rule there is no space between {SERVER_NAME}[R,L]

the flags (in the [] brackets) must be separated from the rule with a whitespace (space, tab ....)

Kalosi: Sorry for the screwup. Not sure whats happened here. Thanks for the help.
