- Working with ISAPI_Rewrite
- ISAPI_Rewrite directives
- Release notes
|Description:||Group directives that will be applied to specific file-system directory and sub-directories|
|Syntax:||<Directory directory-path> ... </Directory>|
|Context:||server config, virtual host|
<Directory> ... </Directory> tag is used to group directives that will apply to specific file-system directory and sub-directories. Wildcard characters ? and * are allowed. Regular expressions can also be used with the addition of the ~ character.
Be careful with the directory-path arguments: They have to literally match the filesystem path which is used to access files. Directives applied to a particular <Directory> will not apply to files accessed from that same directory via a different path, such as via different symbolic links. Only fully qualified file paths are allowed.
Don't forget to include RewriteEngine on directive in every <VirtualHost> tag or enclosed rules will not be applied.
