Custom .htaccess rewrites not working (bug maybe)


Recommended Posts



Simple problem. I have built a rewrite that redirects all traffic from one directory to another:

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^mydomain.com$
RewriteRule ^size-charts/(.*)$ modules/mysizecharts/$1 [L]

This works fine, and I have tested it many times.


The problem is that it will only work if I put it up in the rewrites section, where Presta does all of it's rewriting. If I put it down it the "users" area, below this:

# ~~end~~ Do not remove this comment, Prestashop will keep ...

It does not work. But if I put it in the section where it does work it gets overwritten.


Mod_rewrite is enabled and pretty urls work on the rest of the server.


I should be able to use Rewrites and not have them overwritten. Am I doing something wrong, or did I find a bug?


Thanks for any help!
