We are using a mod rewritten URL within our PHP site, this is the rewrite rule we are using:
RewriteRule ^category/([^.]+)/([0-9]+)/([^.]+)/([0-9]+) categories.php?c_id=$2&filters=$3&_p=$4&area=category&areaname=$1
However, a user of a different system is switching to our setup and wants to 301 all their old pages to their new equivalents. So, for example, this URL:
Is it possible to do this in a single rewrite rule or rewrite match (or similar), my intial thought was something like this would work:
RewriteRule /categories/(.*)/(.*)/1 /category/$1/$2/0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0/1 [R=301,L]
Also tried this with RedirectMatch which also doesnt work:
RedirectMatch /categories/(.*)/(.*)/1 http://domain.com/category/$1/$2/0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0/1
it doesn't, any ideas?
