Rewriting into "different" folder

Known problem?

Battling with a rewrite and it occurred to me that there might be a problem when it comes to having things appear in different folders. Here the scenario.

url/detail-6.php works when detail.php?id=$c

but when I try and “change” the folder a la

url/detail/6.php

it wont stand for it. In that it wont find anything.

I hope the above makes sense, after reading it, it seems mighty confusing.

Cheers

Are you using 404s with PHP or mod rewrite?

Either way should work, you just need to get your syntax right. Can you post some of your code?

I have tried to de-specific it, so I am hopng that I have not created and error in that stage

rewriteRule folder\/detail-([0-9]+)\.php http:\/\/localhost\/folder\/detail.php?c=$1 [L]

works but

rewriteRule folder\/detail/([0-9]+)\.php http:\/\/localhost\/folder\/detail.php?c=$1 [L]

in the php the two respective urls are

detail-$var.php

and

detail/$var.php

The folders in the location are fine.

I am struggling as to why this wont work, but I must be missing something. It is not critical, just not the exact way I would like it.

Your second rule has an unescaped / after detail... is that the problem?
