Hi,

I am changing website platforms and it appears I will need to be correctly identifying a certain type of URL structure, and redirecting to a new structure, but it's not as simple as what I'm seeing for examples to use in htaccess. In my case, I need to do a couple of things.

I need to change this:

https://www.domain.com/products/category/subcategory/product/154-product-friendly-name

to this:

https://www.domain.com/shop/product-friendly-name

Is there a way to manage this type of redirect using 301?

Thank you

Bill

Try something like this in httpd.conf with mod_rewrite for Apache:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule  ^products/category/subcategory/product/[0-9]+-([^/.]+)  shop/$1  [R=301]

Open in new window


To help debug, you can use RewriteLog, and set RewriteLogLevel high (above 3).

Thanks - this is a WAMP server. Should I be using mod_rewrite or IIS URL rewrite?

IIS has a URL Rewrite module. There is a GUI to import Apache mod_rewrite rules, like the one I wrote above.
