PHP Enhancing a Simple PHP Application Cleaning URLs with Rewrite Rules Rewrite Rules with Query Strings

Not modifying Query String

I have everything for the rewrite rules working, except when I go to the old URL for the tshirts page, it still loads and doesn't redirect. ("http://localhost/tshirt/shirts/shirt.php?id=103"). Other than that everything works fine. I can't figure out what's going on. I've emptied my browser's cache and restarted my MAMP server.

Here's my .htaccess file:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^shirts/$ /tshirt/shirts/shirts.php
RewriteRule ^shirts/([0-9]+)/$ /tshirt/shirts/shirt.php?id=$1
RewriteRule ^receipt.php$ /tshirt/receipt/ [R=301]
RewriteRule ^contact.php$ /tshirt/contact/ [R=301]
RewriteRule ^shirts.php$ /tshirt/shirts/ [R=301]
RewriteRule ^(shirts/[0-9]+)$ /tshirt/$1/ [R=301]

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^id=([0-9]+)$
RewriteRule ^shirt.php$ /tshirt/shirts/%1/? [R=301]

Same problem as you. How to redirect shirt.php?id=101 if we work in shirts4mike_local folder?


I think, If you have following BASE_URL and ROOT_PATH constants in your config.php file

define("BASE_URL", "/tshirt/");

define("ROOT_PATH",$_SERVER["DOCUMENT_ROOT"] . "/tshirt/");

Then you should get rid of /tshirt in your .htaccess file.

amirsalehi, Thanks for your response. I already have my config file set up like that, though.
