massively massive server overload with mod_rewrite
« on: October 19, 2008, 07:52:12 AM »

This problem caused me a week of agony.  I think it might be my server configuration but I wanted to report this anyways   It's has nothing to do with the script but a line in the httacces file. Anyways I posted a thread at webhostingtalk.com looking for advice on why my server was experiencing loads of 40-80% for like 10 hours straight.

Basically this line caused me the headache

Quote
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f

I'm running Apache v3.2.0 Build 4453.  If anyone is experiencing some kinda problem it could be because of that line.  The problem could be configuration issues with softwares I use to run my server. 

I was using 1.4 but I notice the same line in 1.7.  This is probably a unique case and probably won't happen to anyone else but if it does I hope this thread helps you.

I've been reading the thread, but it is kinda confusing. Could you explain what happened there?
Did you simply delete RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f or did you replace it?
