htaccess statement not right.

hi all,

I've recently moved to a new server. The following statement used to work on the old server but the new server causes a error 500 and pages on the site:

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING}  ^$
RewriteRule ^Related_Guides/A_Guide_to_Buying_a(?:[\ +]|%20)Business_31\.php$ /Related_Guides/A_Guide_to_Buying_a_Business_31\.php? [R=301,NE,NC,L]

Open in new window


Any rewrite would be appreciated.

Maybe that new server requires does not allow rewrite rules. What do you get in the error_log of the new server?

Hi Mulith,

i think chmod i.e support the rewrite things is not enable on server. so better way to check that just upload the one file that contain the phpinfo() , and execute that on browser it will clearly shows that a rewrite is supported or not?
