Apache redirects?! How


Hello,


Is there possible to redirect an URL in apache to another url..

Lets say that i got the url trail

/demo/mysite/pic/58.jpg

and want to redirect all of the 58.jpg to
/demo/mysite/?showdbimage=58

/demo/mysite/pic/X.jpg
should go to
/demo/mysite/?showdbimage=X


And make that apply to all of my sites under /demo

?
Is this possible to do from a .htaccess file (I now NOTHING about thes .htacces files)..=)


Thankful for help,
Regards..

Have you looked at mod_rewrite apache module?

Yeah.. Thanks.. That helped a lot!!!=)

Another question though...


if I have in one of the dir a .htaccess file that looks like this:
Code:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^/pics/(.*)\.jpg$ /?showdbimage=$1
it deos not work..
Any suggestions?

Im working in www.foo.bar/demo/mysite/
Im thinking it has to do that im not in the root directory www.foo.bar..?

Does anyone have any hints for me on how to fix this??
Thanks..

Check if you've got "AllowOverride None" in your httpd.conf. If yes then it will ignore .htaccess.

Increase log level - think it is RewriteLogLevel. Check logs to see how it is rewriting and why ..
