I am trying to redirect the URL:

http://www.mydomain.com/productpage.php?id=34

to

http://www.mydomain.com/products

I have tried using:

Redirect permanent     /productpage.php?id=34      http://www.mydomain.com/products
Redirect permanent     http://www.mydomain.com/productpage.php?id=34      http://www.mydomain.com/products

Could anyone point out what I am doing wrong here?

Cheers

Eef

I'm not sure if you can pass variables via RedirectPermanent. Try an Alias:
Alias /productpage.php?id=34 http://www.mydomain.com/products
If that doesn't work, you can try a computationally expensive RewriteRule:
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^productpage\.php\?id=34 http://www.mydomain.com/products

The one rule should work.

RedirectPermanent     /productpage.php?id=34      http://www.mydomain.com/products
