Following you tutorial I enabled .htaccess files (AllowOverride All); I then proceeded to write the following in in my .htaccess file:


RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^blogs/?(.*)$ /cgi-bin/blosxom.cgi/$1


the rules appears to work, but now I am forbidden to access /cgi-bin. when i take the .htaccess file out, scripts in my cgi-bin work fine. the rewrite rule appears to work as well as the forbidden message is "You don't have permission to access/cgi-bin/blosxom.cgi/ on this server" when I attempt to go to /blogs.


Any ideas how this .htaccess rule blocked cgi-bin access?
