Hello all,

I am (agian) playing with htaccess. Is there a way to redirect to an 404 page using url parameters?

So for example

www.mysite.nl/site/en/something/andwhatever --> is not found

needs to redirect to

ErrorDocument 404 /site/en/404


www.mysite.nl/site/ru/something/andwhatever --> is not found

needs to redirect to

ErrorDocument 404 /site/ru/404

Is there a way to do this?

Do you have access to the httpd.conf, if yes see:


If not something along the following lines should do:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule  ^/?site/([a-zA-Z][a-zA-Z])/.*    /site/$1/404   [L]
