I want requests to /projects/this-is-the-id to get rewritten with a rule to /article.php?project_name=this-is-the-id

My RewriteRule is as so:

Options +FollowSymlinks
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^/projects/(.*?)/?$ /article.php?project_name=$1 [L,NC]

I've verified that my .htaccess file is getting picked up. Any help here?

Thanks so much in advance.

Holy mess and mother of God!

You rock the T.O.P.!

That worked perfectly!

of course a name like 'TowerOfPower' must have been earned somehow.

Mad props Tower. Thanks so much.

The .* is "greedy" as a pattern match.

There will be a way of simplifying that to make it more efficient.
