    Default Rewrite rules incompatible with Apache 2.4.26 (latest)

    Hello,

    I'm not looking for support myself but wanted to alert you to the fact that a portion of your .htaccess rewrite rules no longer work with Apache 2.4.26+ due to various changes that cause infinite redirects, namely the below rule.

    Code:
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(admincp/|dbseocp/|modcp/|cron|mobiquo|forumrunner|api\.php|reviewpost/|classifieds/|photopost/)
    RewriteRule ^((archive/)?(.*\.php(/.*)?))$ dbseo.php [L,QSA]
    Regards.

    This is not a bug, and this line no longer appears in the latest version of the product. If you redownload the product you will see the updated rule in the readme.txt file

    I see that the readme has updated info but the .htaccess/htaccess.txt still contains the old info.

    Thanks and regards.

    EDIT:

    I've just tried it with your updated rule set below too and same issue due to the ASF changes.

    Code:
    RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} !dbseourl=
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(adminz/|adbseoz/|modcp/|cron|mobiquo|forumrunner|api\.php|reviewpost/|classifieds/|photopost/)
    RewriteRule ^(.*\.php)$ dbseo.php?dbseourl=$1 [L,QSA]

    What do you mean by ASF changes?

    Apache 2.4 Change Log

    Both variations of that specific rewrite above work with 2.4.25 and prior, neither are working as intended after the .26 changes - infinite redirect loop.

    Sorry, I don't see anything in that changelog that indicates why this would break, so it sounds like an Apache bug at this point. That rewrite rule is needed for proper operation of the mod.

    In simple terms, Apache 2.4.26 introduced GENERIC for the ProxyFCGIBackendType directive (i.e. PHP-FPM). This is required for DBSEO to remain compatible and fully functional.

    Regards.
