We have this issue cropping up sporadically ever since we installed the new Helicon Ape product. There were no such problems with ISAPI_Rewrite but we were not able to install that on our new 64 bit operating system.
Once a month or thereabouts, mod_rewrite suddenly stops working. For example today one of our key client sites has died because of this.
This rule DOES work:
RewriteRule . - [F]
But NO OTHER rewrite rules work any more. The .htaccess file has not been modified in any way for about six months.
For example this rewrite rule NO LONGER WORKS as of 1:30pm today:
RewriteRule ^sales/recent$ /sales/recent.aspx
There are no errors reported in error.log.
rewrite.log is completely empty.
How can we bring our sites back online?
