    After having upgraded our servers because of the SuEXEC-bug the /cpanel and /webmail redirects wouldn't work anymore (because SuEXEC does not allow redirect.cgi and wredirect.cgi to be executed). Before starting to fiddle with SuEXEC I thought it would be easier to just implement this functionality in mod_rewrite so this is my quickfix:

    1. remove ScriptAlias /cpanel and ScriptAliasMatch /cpanel/(.*) (also for webmail)

    2. add

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteLogLevel 0

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/cpanel
    RewriteRule (.*) http://%{HTTP_HOST}:2082/ [R,L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/webmail
    RewriteRule (.*) http://%{HTTP_HOST}:2095/ [R,L]

    does not work (yet) with SSL, but at least the basic functionality is provided until someone at cpanel fixes the actual problem.

    "Note that, by default, rewrite configurations are not inherited. This means that you need to have a RewriteEngine on directive for each virtual host in which you wish to use it."

    http://httpd.apache.org/docs/mod/mod_rewrite.html#RewriteEngine

    aah sh*t. seems like i need to wait until this bug is fixed by cpanel.

    Is there a fix for this?
    I've posted couple of tickets to cPanel to solve this problem, but no luck yet... :eek:

    make sure your /usr/local/apache/conf/access.conf says:

    I had a problem similar to that before and that was my fix
