einfaches Testen von .htaccess Rewrite-Regeln123


Fiddling with .htaccess Rewrite-rules for the apache server can be a constant pain. With some simple practice and a bit of bash scripting, you can write, deploy and most importantly test your rewrite rules in a breeze.

1. Do not test in the browser. Use wget.

I assume, that some 301-redirect are part of what you need in your rewrite rules. Chrome and Firefox have the nasty habbit (from a developers angle), that they cache 301 redirects. That means:

Result: The very same, the redirect itself got cached. Only changes on the page you end up on are shown. Unless you clear your browser cache. Ths is a nuisance.
