#1: Simple mod_rewrite question

Posted on 2008-04-13 18:33:38 by k3pp0

Hello.


I'm trying to make use of "pretty URLs" with Apache's rewrite module.

Here's what I want:

http://foo.bar/index.php?download

should be replaced with

http://foo.bar/download


My .htaccess looks like that:

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule (.*) index.php


In the index.php I look at $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] and act
accordingly:

$requestedURI = empty($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']) ? false :
$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];

switch($requestedURI) {
case "/download":
include "download.php";
break;
default:
// do something
break;
}

This works if I go to http://foo.bar/download - it shows index.php
with the included download.php file. But if I go to http://foo.bar/download/
(with a slash at the end of the URL) it doesn't do anything (default
case of switch($requestedURI)), because "/download" != "/download/".

To solve this I could just make two cases: case "/download" and case "/
download/", but I don't really like this solution, if there's a better
one, please tell me.

Let's take it I use the method with the two cases ("/download" and "/
download/"), there's another problem:
In the index.php I've included a stylesheet: "<link rel="stylesheet"
type="text/css" href="main.css" />". As you can see, I use a relative
link to the css file. So if I call http://foo.bar/download, it loads
the css file from http://foo.bar/main.css, but if I enter http://foo.bar/download/
(with the slash) it can't find the css file, because it tries to
locate it at http://foo.bar/download/main.css, but of course, there is
no main.css, /download/ is not even a directory... How do I fix this?

Thanks in advance for any help!

So I'm trying to only use the RewriteEngine to handle my url.

I came across this problem:

Let's assume I have a url like that:
http://foo.bar/index.php?site=users&mode=manage&action=addne w

For example, this url would open a site that let's you add a new
user.
The "pretty" url should look like http://foo.bar/users/manage/addnew
This works fine:
RewriteRule ^([^/\.]+)/([^/\.]+)/([^/\.]+)/?$ index.php?site=$1&mode=
$2&action=$3 [L]

But http://foo.bar/index.php?site=users&mode=manage (note that
there's
no action parameter) should also be accessible through the pretty url
(/users/manage) and so should http://foo.bar/index.php?site=users
(through /users). The RewriteRule I mentioned above does only work if
you have a site, mode and action parameter, but not with just a site
or just a site + mode parameter.

Is there a way to solve this without making a RewriteRule for each
case (or probably a better solution than mine)?

Thanks in advance!

Try on a single line the untested
RewriteRule ^([^/\.]+)(/([^/\.]+))?(/([^/\.]+))?/?$
index.php?site=$1&mode=$3&action=$5 [L]
