I configured a forward proxy server, which works. I'm now trying to rewrite URLs to eliminate ads. I found examples on the web for this but when I put the RewriteRules into rewrite.conf they seem to have no effect. I put in the required "RewriteEngine On" and defined a RewriteLog file. I made sure that rewrite.load was loaded before anything other modules and rewrite.conf before any other conf files. The log shows that the rewrite engine was called and logged the message "(2) init rewrite engine passed filename proxy:http://.
.. Original uri = http://..." This is immediately followed by a log message "(1) pass through proxy:http://..." which is unchanged by the rewrite rules. It seems like the rules are not being applied at all. Any ideas or suggestions?
