RewriteBase config for cake installation with userDir and mod_rewrite

by syl-via
This article shows how to configure RewriteBase in 3 .htaccess files in cake installation located in userDir ~/user/cake_install
If the cake app is installed in ~/user/cake_install/, than to correctly configure the RewriteBase you will need to edit 3 .htaccess files:

adding the directive: RewriteBase as follow:

Path  ---->  RewriteBase
~/user/cake_install/.htaccess   ---->     RewriteBase /~user/cake_install/
~/user/cake_install/app/.htaccess  ---->    RewriteBase /~user/cake_install/app/
~/user/cake_install/app/webroot/.htaccess   ---->  
RewriteBase  /~user/cake_install/app/webroot/
