Rewriting urls with mod_rewrite - GET variables
I found out I could make clean urls with mod_rewrite. I managed to make pages like /home.php viewable by visiting /home (without .php).
Now, I'd like to turn view_album.php?album_id=23 into album/23
This is the code I use, but sadly it's not working:
Options SymLinksIfOwnerMatch MultiViews RewriteEngine On RewriteBase /beta/ RewriteRule ^album/(.*)/ view_album.php?album_id=$1
Thanks in advance.
RewriteEngine On RewriteBase /beta/ RewriteRule ^album/([0-9]*)$ view_album.php?album_id=$1
and make sure you only rewrite if a noting or a number follows album/, so your can access your images, which may be in a folder named album.
