Rewrite all calls to a file in root

hello experts,

I'd like to know if its possible to use mod_rewrite to rewrite a call to say www.domain.com/path/subdir/ to www.domain.com/script.php?path=path/subdir/

my ideas were

RewriteRule ^/script\.php(.*)-[L]
RewriteRule ^(.*)/script\.php?path=$1

but I only get a 500.

any ideas?

Here is some example...

# http://sub.domain.com/en/file.php?foo=bar
# to http://www.domain.com/file.php?site=sub&lang=en&foo=bar
RewriteEngine On
# Extract the subdomain part, it will be stored into %1
# [^.]+ means: match all characters except the dot
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^([^.]+)\.example\.com$ [NC]
# We make sure it's not the main host, ie www.example.com
RewriteCond %1 !^www$ [NC]
# Check to avoid internal endless loops
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/file\.php$ [NC]
# Let's go and make an internal redirection
# by redirecting
# sub.example.com/language/filename.php
# to www.example.com/filename.php?site=sub&lang=language&etc
RewriteRule ^([^/]+)/[^.]+\.php$ /$2.php?site=%1&lang=$1 [QSA,L]
