I would like to redirect using my .htaccess based on a particular query string.

if i get a URL like this with "mode=app" in the query string, i'd like to redirect to a new server:
http://stage.example.com/test/?format=json&userid=%1&version=5&mode=ffp

What is the simplest way to do this? I've experimented with redirect, RedirectMatch, RewriteCond, etc but haven't been able to do it.

THANKS!

I suppose I could also do this inside a PHP file but i thought .htaccess made more sense.

> redirect, RedirectMatch,

Directives from mod_alias can't check the query string. You'll need mod_rewrite:
RewriteEngine on

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} mode_app

RewriteRule ^  http://server2%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]
