PHP mod rewrite query

Last Modified: 2014-11-06
Hello,

How would I use mod_rewrite to redirect users from a URL as follows:

www.domain.com/folder1/index.php?contact-us

to convert this URL on the server to actually go to:

www.domain.com/index.php?contact-us

So take a URL, strip out a subfolder that appears in all queries from 1 domain name and leave the rest of the URL intact.  The bits after the index.php change so its important to take the received URL and adjust it then keep the remainder.  e.g. index.php?home and index.php?who are we  etc.

Thanks in advance
