    Help Test a Config for Apache w/mod_frontpage/mod_rewrite

    I am looking for someone to setup a test account that tests mod_frontpage with mod_rewrite.

    Basically Apache needs to be configured for mod_frontpage to load before mod_rewrite. After that, install FPSE on the account, and add the following code in the .htaccess after the frontpage code in the .htaccess.

    After that, upload a frontpage form page, and test the form to see if it produces a 403 error.

    Here is the reason why I need to test this:
    -------------------------------------------------------
    I have ran across a fairly large problem with FrontPage Server Extensions conflicting with mod_rewrite in the .htaccess file.

    Using this simple rewrite code:
    Code:
    RewriteEngine On 
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} . 
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}!^www\.example\.com [NC] 
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.example.com/$1 [R=301]
    My FrontPage Search, as well as Counter, Forms, and various other FPSE components no longer function correctly. The Search and Form pages produce a 403 Forbidden error. Also I have noticed that when the RewriteEngine is on, you can no long Publish using FrontPage's Publish feature either.
    -------------------------------------------------------

    I just verified on one server this didn't work, but if anyone doesn't mind helping that would be great.
