Help with rewrite rule

Hi all,

I am trying to come up with a rewrite rule for the following:

http://www.mysite.com/inner.php?59,,520797p,rsc270619,0,0,Index,ck_.html

maps to

http://www.mysite.com/about/press

It's only important to match inner.php?59, as the rest is fairly irrelevant.

What about

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^59.*\.html
RewriteRule ^inner\.php /about/press [L]

Hi,

Sorry I am not very clear, are you trying to rewrite something like:

http://www.mysite.com/about/press/,520797520797p,rsc270619,0,0,Index,ck_.html

To

http://www.mysite.com/inner.php?59,,520797p,rsc270619,0,0,Index,ck_.html

If that is the case try:
RewriteRule ^about/press/(.*)$ about/press/$1/ [R]
RewriteRule ^about/press/(.*)/$ inner.php?59,$1

Thank you, but that's not exactly what I need.

I need to rewrite

http://www.mysite.com/about/press/,520797520797p,rsc270619,0,0,Index,ck_.html

to

http://www.mysite.com/about/press

Hi

sorry about the confusion, you want:
http://www.mysite.com/inner.php?59,,520797p,rsc270619,0,0,Index,ck_.html
maps to
http://www.mysite.com/about/press

This should do:
RewriteRule ^inner.php?59,,520797p,rsc270619,0,0,Index,ck_.html$ about/press [L]

We're getting closer.  I had also mentioned that what really needs to be matched is

inner.php?59

because the rest of it is session data.  So it's almost like I need something like:

^inner.php?59(.*)\.html$ about/press [L]

but it doesn't seem to work.  The URL simply doesn't change in the address bar.

Hi ebeyrent,

The URL shouldn't change in the address bar but the page from about/press should be displayed.  I think if you want the address to be redirected, use [R] instead of [L] at the end.

What slyong says is correct.

Url rewritting by default hides what the request has been rewritten to (it adds an extra level of obfuscation and hence security). You can use [L,R] if you need to L is to tell it that it's the last rule to apply and the R is for the redirect.
