mod_rewrite - htaccess - help

folks. trying to get mod rewrite to work so we can convert cgi to html. We are on a RAQ3, and it seems the htaccess file is not working...

even a basic htaccess with a redirect inside it does not work.. is there any info about getting htaccess to workin a raq3? or does anyone have any advice/help..

access.conf has this:

Options None
AllowOverride None
AuthFailDelay 2000000

# Note that from this point forward you must specifically allow
# particular features to be enabled - so if something's not working as
# you might expect, make sure that you have specifically enabled it
# below.

# This should be changed to whatever you set DocumentRoot to.

<Directory /home/sites/>
ErrorDocument 400 /Error_Docs/400.html
ErrorDocument 401 /Error_Docs/401.html
ErrorDocument 403 /Error_Docs/403.html
ErrorDocument 404 /Error_Docs/404.html
ErrorDocument 500 /Error_Docs/500.html
ErrorDocument 501 /Error_Docs/501.html
ErrorDocument 502 /Error_Docs/502.html
ErrorDocument 503 /Error_Docs/503.html

# This may also be "None", "All", or any combination of "Indexes",
# "Includes", "FollowSymLinks", "ExecCGI", or "MultiViews".

# Note that "MultiViews" must be named *explicitly* --- "Options All"
# doesn't give it to you.

Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Includes MultiViews

# This controls which options the .htaccess files in directories can
# override. Can also be "All", or any combination of "Options", "FileInfo",
# "AuthConfig", and "Limit"

AllowOverride All

# ignore .ht*
<Files ".ht*">
allow from all

# Controls who can get stuff from this server.

order allow,deny
allow from all

AuthFailDelay 2000000

# be more restrictive within a site
<Directory /home/sites/*/>
Options -FollowSymLinks +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch

# @@ServerRoot@@/cgi-bin should be changed to whatever your ScriptAliased
# CGI directory exists, if you have that configured.

#<Directory /home/httpd/cgi-bin>
#AllowOverride None
#Options ExecCGI

# Allow server status reports, with the URL of http://servername/server-status
# Change the "" to match your domain to enable.

#<Location /server-status>
#SetHandler server-status

#order deny,allow
#deny from all
#allow from

# There have been reports of people trying to abuse an old bug from pre-1.1

Did you install the mysql_auth module in apache? I have seen in other posts that all htaccess are override by this module, so if you want to use a htaccess auth and you have it installed you need to add this line to htaccess:

AuthMySQL off
Auth_MySQL off

Also remember to always upload .htaccess files in Ascii Mode
