I currently have a site that uses URLs like the following:
www.mysite.com/index.php?Page=page1
www.mysite.com/?Page=page1

I would like to be able to use URLs like the following:
www.mysite.com/page1

I am using GoDaddy and have full access to my .htaccess file.  I have RewriteEngine On however, I do not know where to go next with this.

Thank you

The following may be a good start:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-s
RewriteRule ^(.*)$  /index.php?Page=$1 [L]

Open in new window


If you need an explanation of the rule the the following article  is a good place to start.

I have added that to my .htaccess file however, I am now receiving an error message that says it was unable to load missing.html.php.  I use the below code in my header file in order to determine what file to include in the body of the site.

<?php
	If ($_GET['Page'] == ''){
		$myPageTitle = 'home';
	} else {
		$myPageTitle = $_GET['Page'];
	}
	$Page = $myPageTitle . ".php";
?>

Open in new window


And here is where the variable is used

<?php include $Page; ?>

Open in new window


Any thoughts?

Not unless you provide the URL your trying to access and whether that file physically exists on the server, and in the specified location.

The solution was to get the URL instead of the page from the server variables. All seems to be working now, thank you!
