htaccess rewrite with query string

Posted on 2012-04-05

I have this php script which contains this line:

header('Location: redirect.php?eid='.$id);

Open in new window


In my .htaccess file, i have:

RewriteEngine On
Options +FollowSymlinks
RewriteRule ^redirect\.php$ http://visitbordentown.com/admin/edit-event.php [L]

Open in new window


I want the user to be redirected to:
http://visitbordentown.com/admin/edit-event.php?eid=xx

but the redirect doesn't work, and just I'm taken to redirect.php?eid=xx

(The redirect was working fine before I tried to pass the query string)

Thanks,
Kyle

RewriteRule ^redirect\.php http://visitbordentown.com/admin/edit-event.php [QSA,L]

as a RewriteCond is missing, I guess you probably want:

RewriteRule ^/+redirect\.php http://visitbordentown.com/admin/edit-event.php [QSA,L]

Note: these rules assume that they match after your php script sended the Location: redirect

Still no luck. I don't get redirected.

location goes to:

http://visitbordentown.com/admin/redirect.php?eid=49

and stays there...

No, that's not what I'm looking for.

in the .htaccess file I want to redirect the following:

http://visitbordentown.com/admin/redirect.php?eid=xx

to :

http://visitbordentown.com/admin/edit-event.php?eid=xx

what's puzzling me is that the redirect works fine if there is no query string...

I don't know why this is working now, but this seems to have done it:

RewriteRule redirect.php http://visitbordentown.com/admin/edit-event.php [R=303]

please post the entry from the working redirect from access.log
the other one, with query string, must be in access.log or error.log, otherwise you most likely checked the wrong server
