This is an example of something that is just a PIA to churn through,
partly because these idiots are splicing an ISII crapolla fix into
their "documentations", and secondly because assume your sitting on
someone elses webserver, rather than your own, and thirdly because
they believe that your apache set up has a rather rare and somewhat
insecure module installed for RedirectMatchUrl, and then ...

their last instruction fails to identify what the hell the code is
for!  Is it httpd.conf?  Is it perl code to drop into the application?

The who concept is to redirect a static uri like

http://www.myuri.com/messages/some_numbers_as_arguments

to their cgi engine automaticaly, to be translated to look
internally as something like this:


http://www.myuri.com/cgi-bin/yabb.pl?some_numbers_as_arguments


It would be just simpler to drop down to mod_perl and add it as a
script into the apache calls under the URI of

http://www.myuri.com/messages/

and be done with it....

The whole discussion of symbolic links to directories is just confussing
the issue.  There doesn't need to be any real directory when the server
is picking up that uri and handling it entirely within the apache
engine.
