I think Ape is working because I followed this page. http://www.helicontech.com/articles/using-helicon-ape-under-iis6-windows-server-2003
Specifically, I did this first as instructed. My site shows "Forbidden". The site says if it shows Forbidden, that means rewrite is working.
RewriteRule .? - [F]
Then, next, again as instructed, I did this to test RewriteProxy.
RewriteProxy (.*) http://www.helicontech.com/$1 [L]
I got the result as expected.
So, that's why I think Ape is working.
.htaccess file has NTFS permission.
It looks like if there is a real file, it's working. For example,
#RewriteRule ^index.htm$ test.asp [NC]
There is an index.htm page, and if I do http://www.xxx.com/index.htm, then it goes to http://www.xxx.com/test.asp.
But, obviously, this is not what I want.
http://www.xxx.com/foo.htm just displays "The page cannot be found" instead of displaying the content of test.asp.
Any help would be appreciated. I've been trying to make it work all day, and it's not going anywhere.
