I'm using the following
.htaccess file in one of my subdirectories on my server:
Options +FollowSymlinks RewriteEngine on RewriteRule (.*)\.png generate.php?userid=$1
My non-production environment handled the above just fine without a hitch.
However, when implemented on my live production environment and accessed, the server load goes through the roof and no webpages are loaded until the process is killed (I don't actually know the process, the other administrator just does it for me.)
So, is it my production environment that is set up incorrectly or is it that my code is sloppy/incorrect?
