The use of this tool is very simple.

  • Open the DWebPro Rewrite Engine Tester (Start -> Programs -> DWebPro -> Advanced Tools -> Rewrite Engine Tester).

  • The Request Path field contains the path part of the requested URL.

  • The Request Query String field contains the query string of the requested URL.

  • The memo under the Rewrite button contains the mod_rewrite directives you want to test.

  • Once you have filled the above fields with your information, click on the Rewrite button and you will get the rewritten path in the Rewritten Path field.

  • The key/value list on the right contains the server variables supported by the URL Rewrite Engine.
