Question Rewrite URL in apache


Hi all, can i ask for your help? I'm in trouble in setting up my vhost in apache. Currently my site is up and running, my problem is that I can't get it to short url. Here's the scenario:

a. I have a website running on my server currently on vhost on port 80 and 443. Here is the config file:

Code:
    <VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerName wiki.company.com
        ServerAdmin infra@company.com
        ServerAlias wiki wiki.company.com

        DocumentRoot /var/www/html

        Redirect / https://wiki.company.com/

     </VirtualHost>

    <VirtualHost *:443>
        ServerName wiki.company.com
        ServerAdmin infra@company.com

        ProxyPreserveHost On
        ProxyRequests Off
        SSLProxyEngine off
        SSLEngine on
        SSLProtocol -ALL +SSLv3 +TLSv1
        SSLCipherSuite ALL:!aNULL:!ADH:!eNULL:!LOW:!EXP:RC4+RSA:+HIGH:+MEDIUM
        SSLCertificateFile /etc/pki/tls/certs/server.crt
        SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/pki/tls/certs/server.key

        DocumentRoot /var/www/html
        RedirectMatch ^/$ /wiki/

       ################################## 
        RewriteEngine On
        RewriteRule ^/?view(/.*)?$ %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/wiki/index.php [L]
        RewriteRule ^/?$ %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/wiki/index.php [L]
       ##################################
       <Directory /var/www/html/wiki>
             Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
             AllowOverride None
            Order allow,deny
            Allow from all
        </Directory>

    </VirtualHost>
b. Whenever i am going to visit the login page which is https://wiki.company.com/view/Special:UserLogin. I want to rewrite it's URL to display only https://wiki.company.com/login or just https://wiki.company.com/. But my RewriteRule fails. This is what i have added to :*443

Code:
 RewriteRule ^/view/Special:UserLogin(.*) https://wiki.company.com/ [R,L]
Hope i explain myself clearly on this. Thanks

I don't know how it's failing, but please note that you have another rule:
Quote:
RewriteRule ^/?view(/.*)?$ %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/wiki/index.php [L]
that rewrites a URL starting with "/view..." to "/var/www/html/wiki/index.html"

Regards

you can add an alias entry for view/Special:UserLogin

Code:
Alias   /    view/Special:UserLogin
or
Code:
Alias   /login    view/Special:UserLogin
restart your apache server

No you can't.
Alias is used to map a directory outside the DocumentRoot to some URL. In this case Special:UserLogin surely does not look like a directory name, so you cannot alias it to something else.

bathory pointed out the issue,
adding a Rewrite Condition before the ambiguous Rewrite Rule will solve the issue.
Quote:
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/view/Special:UserLogin
RewriteRule ^/?view(/.*)?$ %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/wiki/index.php [L]
