Angry Apache Rewrite Not Working

Yesterday I spent hours working on some rewrite rules, today I moved them from the test server to my active server, and they magically don't work now. The rewrites originally redirected to a new server, but used the exact same rule:

RewriteEngine on

RewriteRule /blah/(.*)(/sess/([a-zA-Z0-9]{32}))? http://[DOMAIN]/bin/Health_e_store.php?Page=$1&sessionid=$3

This exact rule worked before, but now my logs are saying my scrpit Health_e_store.php doesn't exist! My whole site operates off of this site, and is functioning, it has not moved, and this script was referenced by the same rewrite last night. I am so fricken frustrated right now, and I was hoping somebody could look at this thing and slap me upside the head and show me what I missed. The Apache error_log says the following:

[Tue May 20 13:21:43 2003] [error] [client x.x.x.x] File does not exist: /bin/Health_e_store.php

The wierd thing is that the rewrite works without the script file, but the script file does exist, I have confirmed this! ARGH!!!


This exact redirect rule does work, when being accessed from another virtual server, but the redirect is to the same script and ending server.

Finally! It was such a stupid thing, Apache wants absolute paths, not URL's, is that written in documentation somewhere? So I fixed it for the path of the script, and voila!
