Can somebody help me with a mod_rewrite rule for this situation? I only need to remove the ‘s’ from a forums segment.

From www.test.com/test-forums/anystring/anystring

or test.com/test-forums/anystring/anystring

To /test-forum/anystring/anystring

So to speak, only S at the end of "forums" is removed.

Any help would be great.

You can try this in your VirtualHost:80 section:

<VirtualHost *:80>
  ... other configuration ...

  RewriteEngine On
  RewriteRule ^/test-forums(.*) /test-forum$1

This will leave the url in the browser address bar as www.test.com/test-forums/anystring/anystring

If you want to send a redirect to the browser so the url displayed in the address bar becomes www.test.com/test-forum/anystring/anystring, add [L,R=301] to the RewriteRule line:

RewriteRule ^/test-forums(.*) /test-forum$1 [L,R=301]
