Mod Rewrite Multiple directories into a query : is this possible? panic
Essentially, what I'm trying to do is pass all subdirectories from a requested URL into a query string using Mod Rewrite.
For example :
I'd like to pass everything after /widgets/ into a query string using Mod ReWrite.
Any ideas as to how this can be done?
Hi panic, i think your question is answered in this thread:
Here, Alternative_Future is asking for a way to go from 1 to 2 like this:
...] mydomain.com 2) [ ...] mydomain.com?country=scotland&type=tour&area=grampian&town=buckie
Part of the answer involves PHP scripting, but there's also an option suggested that involves "RewriteMap" in stead. Check it out, i hope it helps.
Here's a script I wrote for a client that does similar thing. Once you get the idea, you can easily tailor it to your needs. The script transforms URLs of form:
If you aren't using ScriptAlias'ed cgi script as a destination, take the the [PT] flag out. So, here it goes:
RewriteRule (.*/retrieve[^&]*)/([^/]+)/([^/&]+)(.*) $1&$2=$3$4 [N] RewriteRule (.*/)retrieve&([^/]*) $1retrieve.cgi?$2 [PT] panic
I finally figured out how to use an unlimited amount of subdirectories and stick it into a query string.
Here's what I've got in my .htaccess :
RewriteRule ^(.*)/$ output.php?querystring=$1 [L]
Then, in output.php, I split $querystring by "/", then I do my queries/manipulation/etc.
Thanks for everyone's help!
If you don't want the performance hit or complication of using mod_rewrite, you can look into the PATH_INFO environment variable.
