Using ModRewrite

Hi,

I got this in my .htaccess file.
How do I change this to use ModRewrite

i guess like errordocs/errors/400 or some voodoo like that.
now can i use regular expressions so my list doesnt have to be this big?
thanks!

Unfortunately, the documentation at http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/core.html#errordocument leaves no doubt : not possible. On the other side, is it really so much of a problem ?

Just to make sure, I downloaded Apache's source code. In the set_error_document() function, I've found an explicit conversion string to integer for the 3-digit code read from the config file (or .htaccess) and a reference to a conf->response_code_strings[] table. Obviously, they didn't make it "regexp-aware", which confirms the impossibility, since it's the only place in the code where Apache deals with HTTP errors.

>> i guess i will erase the query.

I don't understand. Could you please rephrase ?

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

only reason i ask is this
i have gallery on my site and the mod_rewrite says this:

mod_rewrite is an Apache module that lets web server applications do clever things with URLs. Gallery uses this module to allow it to use short URLs, for example with mod_rewrite this URL takes you directly to a picture:

http://www.menalto.com/photos/Jai2/photo-aaa 
whereas without it, you'd have to use this one:

http://www.menalto.com/photos/view_photo.php?set_albumName=Jai2&id=photo-aaa 

the RedExp would been nice to make one errordocument directive, i like the URI to be shorter if possible.

Hmm, personally, I don't mind, but you should read this :
http://www.experts-exchange.com/help/member.jsp#10 (The correct answer to some questions is "you can't do that")

>> the RedExp would been nice to make one errordocument directive, i like the URI to be shorter if possible.

Aaahh, but that's something completely different ! You don't use ErrorDocument for that. Here something that should do for your request :

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
   RewriteEngine on
   RewriteRule ^([a-zA-Z0-9_-]+)/([a-zA-Z0-9_-]+)$ view_photo.php?set_albumName=$1&id=$2 [QSA]
</IfModule>

I'm not so sure anymore, but also try with prepending photos/ in case it doesn't work

   RewriteRule ^photos/([a-zA-Z0-9_-]+)/([a-zA-Z0-9_-]+)$ photos/view_photo.php?set_albumName=$1&id=$2 [QSA]
