I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

So you're planning to use the RewriteRules in a .htacccess file? Or in httpd.conf?

That would be for a .htaccess file:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^gallery/([^/]+)/index\.html$ /index.php?gallery=$1 [L]
RewriteRule ^gallery/([^/]+)/([0-9]+)/index\.html$ /index.php?gallery=$1&img=$2 [L]

for httpd.conf, just add a leading slash in the pattern:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^/gallery/([^/]+)/index\.html$ /index.php?gallery=$1 [L]
RewriteRule ^/gallery/([^/]+)/([0-9]+)/index\.html$ /index.php?gallery=$1&img=$2 [L]

More Advanced - the Query String:

The query string is passed in separately from the URL. This means that a simple regex doesn't necessarily do the trick, but a compound statement using RewriteCond (condition) is required.

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} id=([^&;]*)
RewriteRule ^/$ http://%{SERVER_NAME}/%1/? [R]
RewriteRule ^/([^/]*)/?$ /index.php?id=$1 [L]

The RewriteCondition matches only when the following condition is true, and continues until a "last" [L] is stated. The Condition's backreferences are different, using the % prefix, and their scope lasts beyond the Condition line.

This above example would translate "/?id=home" into "/home/", and then re-assign the value of "home" to the id HTTP_GET_VAR. One more thing to notice here is that the the second line has a trailing ? - this is used to negate copying of the query string into the new, re-directed URI.
