I got an apache rewrite rule as follows in a .htaccess file:

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?q=$1 [L,QSA]

This came with drupal 6.2

Problem is this stops my invision forum working properly and totally prevents access to the admin side of things.

I need to change said rule to say basically:

"if the url matches /forum/* don't do anything, for everything else run the rule."

I've tried RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !^/forum/*

However that doesn't seem to work all the time. Any ideas?

Perhaps try putting a second rewrite rule at the top of the htaccess file

RewriteRule ^/forums/(.*) /forums/$1 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?q=$1 [L,QSA]

So if thie url contains /forums/ in it it should redirect to the /forms/ directory and stop processing.

I didn't get a chance to try this first, but that's the general idea

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
