all is working fine, but what I want to achieve is simply this:


I've created the "sites" directory and inside I've created the .htaccess file but without success.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

I think you can solve this with mod_rewrite.

Inside your root directory (generally public_html), place a .htaccess file with the following content:

# Turn on URL rewriting
RewriteEngine On

# Installation directory
RewriteBase /

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^www\.mysite\.org\/stats\/$ [NC]
RewriteRule (.*) www\.mysite\.org\/awstats\/awstats\.pl\?config=awstatsconffile\.org - [L]

I'm not good at regex, so you may need to escape/unescape some characters, but that's the way.

Try something like the following in the document root's .htaccess file:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^stats/$ /awstats/awstats.pl?config=awstatsconffile.org [L]

This will internally rewrite requests for /stats/ to the above URL.
