I wish to a rewrite rule so that if your user would go to the URL
example.org/stuff/junk.jpg the rule will process and finish up at
re-writer.php but when the consumer would go to
example.org/stuff/hackingisawesome/junk.jpg the rule won't be triggered and they'll obtain a standard 404 (or perhaps a page, if a person should exist).
I can not tell, in line with the environment variables, if this sounds like possible without some fairly fancy regex.
The same is true anybody are conscious of either:
a) a means this really is already included in the mod_rewrite syntax, or
b) a great, reliable method of handling this with regular expressions?
Links to documentation or lessons welcome. I am and feel unaware on what to do next.
Oh, and I know the methods I possibly could only have the script the rule redirects to merely provide the 404, but I'd rather just use the rule once the conditions exist.
RewriteRule ^stuff/[^/]+$ re-writer.php
This can rewrite all demands to
/stuff/… with just one additional path segment to re-author.php.
