Hi,
I want to redirect pages that are not found to a redirect_page.php using .htaccess but I want to also process the link information.

For example if I have a link to the following pages that don't exist http://www.mywebsite.com/213 or http://www.mywebsite.com/page=454
how do I pass the '/213' & '/page=454' part to my redirect_page.php page?

ErrorDocument 404 http://www.mywebsite.com/redirect_page.php

You'll have to use a rewrite to do this.  Something like:

RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}%{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule (.+) /redirect_page.php?uri=$1 [QSA]

Open in new window

Thanks routine for your help, but when I tried your code I receive an Internal Server Error?

Make sure you have mod_rewrite enabled.  Are you using any other rules?

Thanks  routinet, this is what I have so in my .htaccess.

#SetEnv PHPRC /home/mywebsite/public_html
Options +FollowSymLinks
Options +Indexes
RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} Details
RewriteRule ^([^/]*)/([^/]*)/([^/]*)\.html$ /index.php?page=$1&id=$2&new_page_title=$3 [L]
RewriteRule ([0-9]+)(.*)\.html$ index.php?page_id=$1 


RedirectMatch permanent ^/show/?$  http://www.mywebsite.com.au/showme.php
RedirectMatch permanent ^/showme/?$  http://www.mywebsite.com.au/showme.php


RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}%{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule (.+) /redirect_page.php?uri=$1 [QSA]

Open in new window

I don't see anything obvious there.  Try turning on your RewriteLog...perhaps mod_rewrite can provide some feedback about the application of these rules.

Note that you have to turn on the log in your server conf files, not .htaccess.
