Subject [users@httpd] Help with mod_rewrite
Date Fri, 09 Feb 2007 13:35:30 GMT
I apologize if this has been asked before. Based on the requested  
url, I am trying to map those urls to my file system. I have come up  
with the following Rewrite rule (in my htaccess file)so far:

RewriteRule ^(se|en|us)/(.+) /$2 [E=LANG_CODE:$1]

As you can see, my site is been translated into english, american  
english and swedish. Based on the env variable ['REDIRECT_LANG_CODE],  
I include either English, Swedish or whatever language it might be in  
the html output. A request for e.g.: will be remapped to the file  
"histrory.php" in the folder "about". This is actually working as I  
thought I would be. The problem is when a user requests a URL like:

Apparently, Apache does an internal redirect because it is looking  
for the index.php file (which exists) in the folder "about". The  
thing I do not understand is why the user is being redirected to When doing so, the environmental  
variable LANG_CODE is lost. Why? How can I map those requests to my  
index file without redirecting the user?

Am I making sense?
