- If you use lighttpd as webserver the .htaccess-file won't do anything. But you can use mod_rewrite and a simple rewrite-rule to achieve the same functionality:
- Open the lighttpd-configuration-file (
/etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf on debian).
- Look for the server.modules-variable, usually at the top of the file.
- Make sure you have a line
"mod_rewrite", uncommented. It should look similar to this:
server.modules = (
Add the rewrite rule:
url.rewrite-once = ( "^/sites/default/files/private/(.*)" => "/system/files/private/$1" ) Note: This may only work if you have clean URLs enabled (I use mod_magnet for that).
Save the file and restart the web-server.
