I'm presently while using following rule in mod_rewrite:

RewriteRule /request/([0-9]+)$ /request.php?id=$1

That rule doesn't work, while "demands" rather than "request" within the regexp works. My assumption is the fact that "request" is really a keyword of mod_rewrite or apache, however i cannot verify that.

After I use "request", the redirect works but $1 is definitely empty , even though url is definetely correct.

Thanks

Well, request isn't a mod_rewrite keyword. Key phrases also have bounds: [QSA], ${mapname:key|default}, %{NAME_OF_VARIABLE}...

I possibly could solve the issue by crippling "Multiviews" within the apache configuration.
