    Chaining rewrite rules from directory to directory ...

    Hello all. I'm looking for the appropriate way to chain/link rewrite rules from one directory to another. So, suppose I have the following directory structure:
    /home/jon/public_html/some_directory

    I would like to place a rewrite rule in /home/jon/public_html/.htaccess which rewrites URLS to load from /home/jon/public_html/some_directory. From there, I need the request to also be handled by any rewrite rules that happen to appear in /home/jon/public_html/some_directory/.htaccess.

    Currently, /home/jon/public_html/.htaccess looks something like this:
    Code:
    # SymLinks needs to be on ...
    Options +FollowSymLinks
    
    # Turn rewriting on ...
    RewriteEngine   On
    
    RewriteBase /~jon
    
    # Rewrite us into the correct directory.
    # Change this as necessary.
    RewriteRule ^(.+)$ some_directory/$1    [QSA]
    And /home/jon/public_html/some_directory/.htaccess looks something like this:
    Code:
    # URL Rewriting
    RewriteEngine   On
    
    # set this to your project's visible directory
    RewriteBase     /~jon/some_directory
    
    # add a line like this for every directory you wish to be
    # served/parsed directory (not via index.php)
    RewriteRule ^images/ - [L,QSA]
    
    # all (most) pages should be served via index.php.
    RewriteRule ^$ index.php    [L,QSA]
    RewriteRule ^/$ index.php    [L,QSA]
    RewriteRule ^(.+)/$ index.php?page=$1/index    [L,QSA]
    RewriteRule ^/([^.]+)$ index.php?page=$1    [L,QSA]
    RewriteRule ^/(.+)\.([^.]*)$ index.php?page=$1&theme=$2   [L,QSA]
    Currently, when I make a request like http://localhost/~jon/something, I get a 404 like this:
    The requested URL /~jon/some_directory/something was not found on this server.
    So, it's clear that the rewrite rules in /home/jon/public_html/some_directory/.htaccess aren't taking effect. Should by RewriteBase be different for that file? Or, is there a trick I need here to get this working?

    Thanks!

    I got a solution that fits my particular problem, bypassing the need for the request to be handled by multiple sets of rewrite rules. However, I think it would still be useful to know why my requests were not being processed by both sets of rules ...

    ... Anyone?
