Apache rewrite rule to rewrite to sub dir

One one particular site, I wanted to rewrite all requests to a sub dir. It took me over an hour, because of some obscure problem I haven’t been able to identify.

# The main site located in the /site dir. The .* after the ^ is weird, but without it, it wouldn't work.
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^.*/site/.*
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ site$1 [L,R=permanent]

My guess is it has to do with:

AddHandler php-cgi-script .php
Action php-cgi-script /php5/php5-cgi

Rewrite rules to redirect to a temporary offline page

Sometimes you want to take a site offline for a while. You can put this in .htaccess or the vhost config:

ErrorDocument 503 "We are performing maintenance on the site. Check back in a few minutes."
RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} !=
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule .* - [R=503,L]

When using .htaccess, be sure to have AllowOverride All.

Or when using HTML files and images:

<VirtualHost *>
  DocumentRoot /var/www/down/
  ErrorDocument 503 /maintenance.html
  RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} =/maintenance.html [OR]
  RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} =/logo.jpg
  RewriteRule (.*) $1 [L]
  RewriteEngine On
  RewriteRule .* - [R=503,L]
