Mod Rewrite/Apache Can't rewrite my URLS warrenk
I am having problems getting the friendly urls working. I checked with my host and he told me that it was installed. Plus he confirmed the correct code was entered in httpd.conf. Not sure if there are problems with the setup...or my syntax...but nothing is happening with my urls.
Here is my url...
I want it to be...
Here is what I placed in .htaccess...
RewriteRule ^brandproducts/(.*).php /brandproducts.php?brandid=$1
Am I missing something?
Thanks for any help!
I believe you are missing an initial slash in your rewrite rule. Try this, it might do the trick:
RewriteRule ^/brandproducts/(.*).php /brandproducts.php?brandid=$1
Try adding the
Options directive as shown, and note the minor tweaks to the RewriteRule itself. Options +FollowSymLinks RewriteEngine On RewriteRule ^brandproducts/(.*)\.php /brandproducts.php?brandid=$1 [L] If you have access to your raw error log file, take a look at it - the error log will often give a good clue as to what is wrong.
I made the changes you suggested and still no luck. There is nothing in my error logs. Is there anyway to tell if my host has the rewrite rule installed correctly?
Ask them to send you a copy and to tell you where they installed it -- for example, is it installed in httpd.conf or in .htaccess in your web root directory?
claus' suggestion about the leading slash should be heeded if the code is installed in httpd.conf, and it is (normally) omitted if the code is installed in .htaccess.
Take a look at this thread
I have the same problem and now its resolve.
