Lite version limitations
Lite version of ISAPI_Rewrite shares the same rewrite engine and features but with
the following limitations:
- No support for distributed .htaccess configurations, directory and web site
level configurations. Only one global httpd.conf configuration file will be
loaded from Lite version installation folder.
- No support for <VirtualHost>, <Directory>, <DirectoryMatch>,
<Files>, <FilesMatch>, <Location> and <LocationMatch>
- There is no proxy module in Lite version, thus all proxy related functions
like RewriteProxy directive and [P] flag will be ignored.
- No manual installation package for Lite version to install in a shared hosting
ISAPI_Rewrite Lite is completely free and it is a good solution
for development or testing purposes and for small servers that host only a few
web sites and don’t require distributed configurations or proxy functions.
