System: Windows 2000 Server with Apache 1.3.33 PHP 4.4.0
I added a .htaccess file to one of my subdirectories with a mod_rewrite rule which worked perfectly.
I then deleted the file .htaccess, re-tested the page and the rule was still working!
I have subsequently rebooted the server twice, done a search of the entire hard disk for the .htaccess incase I did not delete it. I cannot find it.
I have no tried adding a new .htaccess file to the same directory with a different rule. But that rule does not work and the old one still takes effect.
Has anyone come across this problem before?
