It worked after a few modifications

The quotes are passed along with the values so I didn't use them.
Here's what works

RewriteRule ^/getpdf\.php$

My mapping program only makes two database queries, one to get the
filename, and a second query to log the download. By default i have it
sending back "NULL\n". That value only gets changed if both queries
execute without error. I'm using @ to prevent any error output.

Thanks for your help.
