I'm trying to do a mod rewrite that will globally rewrite all subdomains to subdirectories unless it is www or example. The below code doesn't seem to work for some reason.
RewriteEngine On
 
#Grab the subdomain from the domain
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^([^.]+).vsssl.com$
 
#Make sure the subdomain is not www or example
RewriteCond %{1} !^(www|example)$
 
#Check if the directory actually exists before we go there
RewriteCond /home/vsssl/public_html/%1 -d
 
#This stops it from looping
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !^/home/vsssl/public_html/
 
#Finally, this is the actual rewrite
RewriteRule (.*) /home/vsssl/public_html/%1/$1 [Last]

Try this:
RewriteEngine On
 
#Make sure the subdomain is not www or example
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^(www|example)\.vsssl\.com$
 
#Grab the subdomain from the domain
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^([^.]+)\.vsssl\.com$
 
#Check if the directory actually exists before we go there
RewriteCond /home/vsssl/public_html/%1 -d
 
#This stops it from looping
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !^/home/vsssl/public_html/
 
#Finally, this is the actual rewrite
RewriteRule (.*) /home/vsssl/public_html/%1/$1 [Last]

no, it didn't work. In fact members.vsssl.com just goes to document root.

Are you using httpd.conf or .htaccess?

"#This stops it from looping"

this stops your rewrite.
RewriteEngine On
 
#Grab the subdomain from the domain
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^([^.]+)\.vsssl\.com$
 
#Make sure the subdomain is not www or example
RewriteCond %{1} !^(www|example)$
 
#Check if the directory actually exists before we go there
RewriteCond /home/vsssl/public_html/%1 -d
 
RewriteCond %1<>%{REQUEST_FILENAME} !^[^<]+<>/home/vsssl/public_html/\1/
 
RewriteRule ^(.*) /%1/$1 [Last]

The .htaccess gave me a internal configuration error. Here's one I created for one subdomain, I don't know if that helps. Maybe you could modify this one since it's working?

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}   ^[www\.]*members.vsssl.com [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/members/.*
RewriteRule   ^(.*)  /members/$1  [L]

The capturing group was missing,
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^([^.]+)\.vsssl\.com$
RewriteCond %{1} !^(www|example)$
RewriteCond /home/vsssl/public_html/%1 -d
RewriteCond %1<>%{REQUEST_FILENAME} !^([^<]+)<>/home/vsssl/public_html/\1
RewriteRule ^(.*) /%1/$1 [Last]
