Hey everyone.  I'm have a problem with double encoding of a URL and I can't seem to figure out exactly how to encode the URL again.  

I have just started using mod_rewrite and the page that gets displayed with the abolute URL, is the exact same as that that gets displayed with the mod_rewrite path...as expected.  However on the page I have a href link to another url, and when a user clicks it, I think mod_rewrite is decoding the url twice.

On one server it isn't douple encoding the url, but on other other it is.  I can't find a difference in configuration does anyone know is this is a configuration issue?

Here is the mod_rewrite code.  

Also there is a popup who's url is generated that is the culpret of the encoded url.

Thanks for taking a look

Try changing the RewriteRule line to this:

ReWriteRule ^/freeplay$ /paasBVA/bva/listpublicfreegames.action?submit.x=0&public=true [L,NE,PT]
