|htaccess and dynamic subdomains|
| 8:28 am on May 20, 2013 (gmt 0)|
Please can you help me. I am trying to set up a domain that uses dynamic subdomains to show content instead of a folder eg.
The pages are created in php with the two fields and
example.com?index.php?field1=XXX&field2=YYY works fine
However using the following htaccess rule
RewriteRule ^(.*)$.example.com/.*)/index.html$ index.php?field1=$1&field2=$2 [NC]
shows a 404 error.
wild card subdomains have been enabled on the domain.

welcome to WebmasterWorld, 4theuk!
|RewriteRule ^(.*)$.example.com/.*)/index.html$ index.php?field1=$1&field2=$2 [NC] |
the RewriteRule Pattern matches the path which does not include the hostname.
if you want to capture and use part of the hostname in your RewriteRule you must use a RewriteCond backreference (%N) and specify the HTTP_HOST server variable as the TestString in the RewriteCond.

Thank you phranque for your explanation as to why it wouldn't work.
