.htaccess redirect

I have 2 redirects in my .htaccess where if I have 1 of them the other one doesn't work, and all the other 200 redirects I have work fine.

Redirect 301 /students/current/regulations/grading http://my.site/admissions/enrolment-services/academic-regulations/grading

Redirect 301 /students/current/regulations http://mysite.ca/admissions/enrolment-services/academic-regulations

The first one in the list works fine (ie if I switched them around the first one would work) The 2nd  just redirects to some shortened url that's not in the path, what am I missing.  I have no redirects that are similar.

and like I said, any other URL's that I have for redirects (about 200) work fine.

Just those 2 conflict.

What am I missing?

Can you share the exact syntax of the two redirects in your .htaccess file?

I did above -- but mysite is substituted.

Redirect 301 /students/current/regulations/grading http://my.site/admissions/enrolment-services/academic-regulations/grading

Redirect 301 /students/current/regulations http://mysite.ca/admissions/enrolment-services/academic-regulations

I also have this:

Redirect 301 /students/future/parents/parents-faq http://mysite.com/admissions/welcome-to-selkirk/parents-families/common-questions

Open in new window


And it's redirecting to: /future-students/parents/parents-faq

I think I got it.  I didn't realize how important order was.
