In my .htaccess file I have the following but the problem is when i type mydomain.com/site/info/?id=234
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^/?site/(.*)$ /site/public/$1
</IfModule>

Open in new window


As soon as I type /?id=234 it redirects back to mydomain.com/site.  Is there any way to fix this.  What do I need to change in my .htaccess file

I tried the following but didn't work

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On

RewriteRule ^/?site/(.*)$ /site/public/$1
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^id=([^&]+)$
RewriteRule ^\enhance\site\$ %1/ [L]

</IfModule>

As your additional post demonstrates, only the URL - not the query string - is tested in RewriteRule.  To rewrite or redirect based on the query string, you need a RewriteCond directive.

Please post the specific information required to generate the rule(s) you need:
The URL the user types in
The URL that should be delivered in response
Should the user see the URL they typed, or the URL you are actually delivering?

So basically  I want the ability to type the following in the URL browser and the user should see what they have typed

http://www.mydomain.com/site/?id=1234

But the following .htaccess needs to be modified

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^/?site/(.*)$ /site/public/$1
</IfModule>

If I put http://www.mydomain.com/site/?id=1234 into my address bar, what page do you want it to go to on your site?

When the user types http://www.mydomain.com/site/?id=1234  it stays on that page

My Current .htaccess is this

The site files are located under /site/public

Thanks for the help

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^/?site/(.*)$ /site/public/$1
</IfModule>

Let's start again.  You have a real, actual page on your site.  Let's call it URL-A.  The user browses to your site by typing "http://yourdomain.com/URL-B" into their address bar.  What I need to know:

What is the actual address for URL-A?
What is the actual address for URL-B?
Will the user see URL-A or URL-B in the address bar?

So when typing www.mysite.com/site it will access the following folder /site/public/.

When typing

www.mysite.com/site/subdir/?id=1

It will still access the folder on the server /site/public/.

I don't need the url rewritten to this
www.mysite.com/site/subdir/id/1

I just want it so that when i type any url variable after slash it will not redirect to www.mysite.com/site/

To restate, you want all unadorned requests to /site to be forwarded to /site/public.  If the request is adorned with a query string, then do not rewrite.  Is that correct?
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^$
RewriteRule ^/?site/(.*)$ /site/public/$1 [NC]

Thanks Steve so this is the issue as soon as i type a

http://www.mysite.com/site/dir/?id=1 
it redirects to http://www.mysite.com/site/ 
and there is no files in that directory.  

What should happen when the user types in
http://www.mysite.com/site/dir/?id=1 
the url shouldn't change but it should read all the files in the public folder that is why i have the following in my .htaccess now

What is throwing it off is the /?id=1 or any variables.  

Thanks for all the help guys I know its confusing.  

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^/?site/(.*)$ /site/public/$1
</IfModule>

So, if I browse to www.mysite.com/site/dir/?id=1, then you want it to actually look for www.mysite.com/site/public/dir/?id=1.  Is that correct?
RewriteRule ^/?site/(.*)$ /site/public/$1 [QSA]

How do you determine which URLs do *not* redirect to /site/public?
