Subject RE: [users@httpd] Mod-Rewrite within a Mod-Rewrite

What do you expect Reference/Glossary should be rewritten to ? 

 As far as I can tell from your rewrite rules, Reference/Glossary and Reference/Glossary/
should be rewritten into Reference/index.php?ref=Glossary. If that is not the case, you should
turn on the rewrite logs at a log level of at least 3. That will enable you to determine why
the rewriting is not happening according to your expectations.

If that is not what you expect, then you should tell us what you expect.

Otherwise I would definitely replace [a-zA-Z0-9()_/-] with [^/] (which matches anything but
/), or at least remove the / as in [a-zA-Z0-9()_-].

Subject: [users@httpd] Mod-Rewrite within a Mod-Rewrite

This is the rewrite rule for my Reference section, which works:

RewriteRule ^Reference/([a-zA-Z0-9()_/-]+)/?$ Reference/index.php?ref=$1 [L] 

I'd like to also create a similar Glossary section, like this:

RewriteRule ^Glossary/([a-zA-Z0-9()_/-]+)/?$ Glossary/index.php?glos=$1 [L] 

Except I'd like the URL to be MySite/Reference/Glossary. In other words, the Glossary folder
will be inside the Reference folder. So I created a new page at Reference/Glossary/index.php,
then changed my mod-rewrite rules, as follows:

RewriteRule ^Reference/Glossary/([a-zA-Z0-9()_/-]+)/?$ Reference/Glossary/index.php?glos=$1

RewriteRule ^Reference/([a-zA-Z0-9()_/-]+)/?$ Reference/index.php?ref=$1 [L] 

It now correctly displays URL's with text appended to Reference/Glossary, like MySite/Reference/Glossary/politics.
However, I can no longer view the Glossary home page. If I type in MySite/Reference/Glossary,
it defaults to http://ivr/Reference/Glossary/?ref=Glossary, and I get a custom Page Not Found
error, where I used to get a real page. How can I fix this?
