Help with mod Rewrite

need some redirection help for a testing platform/subdirectory on a production box
In the root document directory:
I have html pages that have a link to a css file
<link href="/template/screen.css" ...

I want to move a copy of these html files to the directory wpupgrade
so Ill be testing at

Is it possible to use an .htaccess set up to that html files in the wpupgrade directory actually pull the css info from wpupgrade/template/screen.css???
I have lots of html files and would rather not have to 'touch' each one of them to repoint them
something like
condition  /template/screen.css
contition  (http_referer)  /wpupgrade  (something which only affects html files in the wpupgrade directory and has no affect on files in the root directory)
rewrite  /wpupgrade/template/screen.css

None of the above seem to do what I wanted.  I also tried placing them and versions of them in the template/ directory

As a not I dont seem to be able to use the RewriteEngine On when I place them in / and i/templates,  generates a server error.  I think rewrite on was done once and it doesnt liek being called more then once?


Try with this code
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f 
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d 
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ wpupgrade/$1 [L,QSA]

Open in new window

RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^/wpupgrade
RewriteRule ^template/screen.css$ wpupgrade/template/screen.css [L]
This will work
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ wpupgrade/$1 [L]
