Rewrite old files

Hi all.
I launched the first two sites I made with SS last week. As on every relaunch I put some rewrites in the .htaccess file but SS rewrites them again hence they never get to my url.

Redirect permanent /development.php

URL =>

I tried RewriteRule (.*)development\.php [NC,R=301] as well but that results in an error 400.

Does anybody know how to rewrite my old files? Unfortunately redirect pages in SS are not helpful, because I can't type in development.php :(

Hope someone can help

You should add the "L" flag (last) to your RewriteRule, eg. [R=301,NC,L] since that will prevent the execution of further rewrites if a match was found.

I ought to have known better :)

Thanks, banal. Works fine with the L flag now
