Default Problems with mod rewrite and existing directory


I have two webservers, one for development with Ubuntu 11.10 and other for deployment with Ubuntu 10.04. Both runs apache with similar configuration, and the only relevant difference I think it is that deployment one uses ISPConfig 3, so I think my problem may be related with that (perhaps not, indeed...).

Well, I have in both servers the following .htaccess at website root directory:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-l
RewriteRule .* index.php [L]

As you may know, it tells to apache that if the requested filename is neither a file, nor a directory and not a symlink, it should redirect request to index.php.

It works as expected on my development site without ISPConfig 3, but it does NOT on my deployment one with it. The problem is that it redirects to index.php even a folder that yet exists.

So, I have an /admin folder there with the backend office of the site. In the development site if I do:


It works as expected, but in deployment one it redirects to index.php as if it were not a directory. But the folder is there and it IS a directory without any doubt. So I think that mod rewrite directives may be failing for some reason, but what???

Thanks a lot in advance,
