URL rewriting - LAMP


There is a PHP script for my requirement, unfortunately it is without URL rewriting implementation. So it appears something like:


My Apache installation supports mod_rewrite and I'm comfortable with LAMP development. Please provide a link so that I can implement URL rewriting for the same and it should appear as:

Category Page URL as:
or Product Page URL as:

Its an hypothetical example and I'll implement the same for its article (text) management as well.

Something like this would work for you:

  Options +FollowSymLinks
  RewriteEngine On

  RewriteCond %{SCRIPT_FILENAME} !-d
  RewriteCond %{SCRIPT_FILENAME} !-f

  RewriteRule ^category/(\d+)*$ ./category.php?name=$1
  RewriteRule ^product/(\d+)*$ ./product.php?name=$1
