Mod_rewrite QSA confusion


I'm in need of a rewrite code, which I have, but it's not working as expected/needed.

What I need to do is rewrite


Which works, but also, it needs the ability to contiue this pattern further, so i could do
/index.php?var1=var1data&var2=var2data&var3=var3data etc...
giving me

Below is my existing code, I read that the QSA flag might be needed? But also, my example has predefined variable names, can it be done without knowing the variable names?

RewriteRule ^([^/]*)/$ /index.php?var1=$1

Open in new window

If the variable names are static / known tTry something along the following lines:

#Skip the next 8 rules if a Request for a Real directory
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
RewriteRule ^(.*)/$    -  [S=8]

RewriteRule ^([^/]*)/$                         /index.php?var1=$1 [L]
RewriteRule ^([^/]*)/([^/]*)/$             /index.php?var1=$1&var2=$2 [L]
RewriteRule ^([^/]*)/([^/]*)/([^/]*)/$ /index.php?var1=$1&var2=$2&var3=$3 [L]
RewriteRule ^([^/]*)/([^/]*)/([^/]*)/([^/]*)/([^/]*)/([^/]*)/([^/]*)/([^/]*)/$ /index.php?var1=$1&var2=$2&var3=$3&var4=$4&var5=$5&var6=$6&var7=$7&var8=$8 [L]

It's possible to specify the variable names as well, in the URL's, and adapt the rules accordingly.

Hi, Thanks for the response.

I could use this but ideally, it'd work without knowing variable names in advance. Is that not possible?

Thanks again.
