I have built a grok app for my sister, and it is hosted by a hosting
service.  My grok app is called pets, and I want its url to be and not  My hosting service
suggested I add a static/cgi/php app called pets_proxy and have the url
point to that.  Then, in the main directory of pets_proxy make a file called
.htaccess an put a rewrite rule there.  I did, and it looks like this:

RewriteEngine On 
RewriteRule ^(.*)
http://localhost:6571/pets/$1 [P,L]

It looks pretty much like what one of the grok tutorials said to do.  The
problem is that now, when you go to, the images and css are
not coming through.  I have no formatting and no images.  When I click on
the links, the browser says "A system error occurred."

Does anyone have an idea for me?



PS.  I love using grok.  Thank you grok people.
