I was wondering if somebody could help me with an Apache re-write rule. Apparently CentOS 6.8 is running apache-2.2.15-53. I am trying
to redirect all pages except for two pages. The apache rewrite directives in the httpd config are:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI}!^/test/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI}!^/my-folder/
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.newdomain.com/$1 [R=301,L]

These commands should cause all requests to get re-directed to www.newdomain.com except for those with a /test or /my-folder on the end of the
URL. However when I place these commands into the the httpd config apache spits out this error message:

Starting httpd: Syntax error on line 31 of /etc/httpd/conf.d/olddomain.conf:
RewriteCond: bad argument line '%{REQUEST_URI}!^/test/

I have of course renamed the real config parameters. Can somebody tell me if these directives only work in apache-2.4 and if so how do I do the
same thing in apache-2.2? If these directives should work in apache-2.2 is this an apache problem?

Thanks for your help.
