I am trying to pass a actual url as a varible using mod_rewrite on apache
I have a page externalLink.php that can be passed a url in oder to do some magic i.e.
I wnat this to be a nice url like /external/http://example.com
I have added a rewrite rule to my htaccess that I hope might work, but as a suspected it does not.
RewriteRule ^external/([^/.]+)/*$ /externalLink.php?url=$1 [L]
Does anyone know if this is possible ?
Thanks in advance
