Rewrite Rule
escaping . and? characters in the url

 9:29 pm on Aug 18, 2006 (gmt 0)

I have the rewrite rule:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^run(.+) /example.php?$1 [L]

this will do fine with:


(it rewrites to: [domain.com...]

but I want it to work with the following url:


I thought I could just escape the . and? with backslashes to make this work:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^run\.cgi\?(.+) /example.php?$1 [L]

But that always produces errors. Does anyone know how can I do this?
