Hi all :)

i have a page available at 2 URLs:

http://www.futureharvesteurope.com/index.php?mod=prod&p=55
and
http://www.futureharvesteurope.com/index.php?mod=prod&desc=Ozone-plug-in&p=55

i need to redirect the first url to the second one that has the keywords in it. (Ozone-plug-in)

this is my full htaccess that is not doing the job:

Options +FollowSymLinks -MultiViews
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /

RedirectMatch 301 http://www.futureharvesteurope.com/index.php?mod=prod&p=55 http://www.futureharvesteurope.com/index.php?mod=prod&desc=Ozone-plug-in&p=55

RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^.*\/index\.php\ HTTP/
RewriteRule ^(.*)index\.php$ /$1 [R=301,L]
RewriteCond %{http_host} ^futureharvesteurope.com$ [nc]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.futureharvesteurope.com/$1 [r=301,nc,L]

First thing I would check is that you have the mod_rewrite module loading in apache.

Next, check your .htaccess file's owner/group and permissions. I am not 100% certain on this, but I believe that the file has to be owned/grouped to the same thing as the apache service and the permissions I think need to be 0700 or 0755.

try:

Options +FollowSymLinks -MultiViews
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING}     ^(mod=[^&]*&p=[^&]*)$    [OR,NC]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING}     ^(p=[^&]*&mod=[^&]*)$    [NC]
RewriteRule ^/?index.php$       /index.php?%1&desc=Ozone-plug-in      [NC,L,R=301]

yes that seems to work. I have been looking at it and trying to figure out how to adapt it to other pages i need redirecting like:

http://www.futureharvesteurope.com/index.php?mod=prod&desc=&p=5

to

http://www.futureharvesteurope.com/index.php?mod=prod&desc=ph-monitor-ph-tester&p=5

is there a way that i can say if url has p=5 then redirect to: desc=ph-monitor-ph-tester&p=5

its just that i can't see a way of reusing the code.

i used that code but when going to:
http://www.futureharvesteurope.com/index.php?mod=prod&desc=&p=5

The url changes to this:
http://www.futureharvesteurope.com/index.php?mod=prod&desc=&p=5&desc=ph-monitor-ph-tester&desc=ph-monitor-ph-tester&desc=ph-monitor-ph-tester&desc=ph-monitor-ph-tester&desc=ph-monitor-ph-tester&desc=ph-monitor-ph-tester&desc=ph-monitor-ph-tester&desc=ph-monitor-ph-tester&desc=ph-monitor-ph-tester&desc=ph-monitor-ph-tester&desc=ph-monitor-ph-tester&desc=ph-monitor-ph-tester&desc=ph-monitor-ph-tester&desc=ph-monitor-ph-tester&desc=ph-monitor-ph-tester&desc=ph-monitor-ph-tester&desc=ph-monitor-ph-tester&desc=ph-monitor-ph-tester&desc=ph-monitor-ph-tester&desc=ph-monitor-ph-tester

using:

Options +FollowSymLinks -MultiViews
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /


RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING}     (.*\bp=5\b.*)    [NC]
RewriteRule ^/?index.php$       /index.php?%1&desc=ph-monitor-ph-tester      [NC,L,R=301]

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING}     ^(mod=[^&]*&p=[^&]*)$    [OR,NC]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING}     ^(p=[^&]*&mod=[^&]*)$    [NC]
RewriteRule ^/?index.php$       /index.php?%1&desc=Ozone-plug-in      [NC,L,R=301]


RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^.*\/index\.php\ HTTP/
RewriteRule ^(.*)index\.php$ /$1 [R=301,L]
RewriteCond %{http_host} ^futureharvesteurope.com$ [nc]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.futureharvesteurope.com/$1 [r=301,nc,L]

It must 301 it then see it has the p=5 and redo it again and again?

agree. Try:
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING}     (.*\bp=5\b.*)    [NC]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING}    !(desc=ph-monitor-ph-tester)     [NC]
RewriteRule ^/?index.php$       /index.php?%1&desc=ph-monitor-ph-tester      [NC,L,R=301]
