I have some problems with rewrite rule. I have 2 scripts, article.php?url= and product.php?ulrprodus= and I want to setup for them rewrite rules like below:

My Rewrite rules:

RewriteEngine On
Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteRule ^([a-zA-Z0-9-/]+).html$ article.php?url=$1 
RewriteRule ^([a-zA-Z0-9-/]+).html$ produs.php?urlprodus=$1 

Only one rewrite is functioning article.php?url=$1. If I reverse the order also only rewrite will functioning but this time product.php?urlprodus=$1.

I need both to be functional.

    The patterns on both rules are the same. How is Apache supposed to know which rule to use for any given url? – Flup Nov 11 '14 at 10:24

You need to have something like this

RewriteEngine On
Options +FollowSymLinks

RewriteRule ^article/([a-z0-9-/]+).html$ article.php?url=$1  [NC,L]
RewriteRule ^produs/([a-z0-9-/]+).html$ produs.php?urlprodus=$1 [NC,L]

So rewrite matches are different; now you would be able to make rewrite from say




In action;

$ cat .htaccess 
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^article/([a-zA-Z0-9-/]+).html$ article.php?url=$1  [NC,L]
RewriteRule ^produs/([a-zA-Z0-9-/]+).html$ produs.php?urlprodus=$1 [NC,L]

$ cat article.php 

$ curl -i localhost/article/hello-world.html
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Tue, 11 Nov 2014 12:57:38 GMT
Vary: Accept-Encoding
Content-Length: 35
Content-Type: text/html

    [url] => hello-world
  • Hi sir,i tried your method and it doesn't work. url is like categorie-1/subcategorie-1.html and urlprodus is like categorie-1/subcategorie-1/produs-subcategorie-1.html .Both of them I extract from the MySQL database. – constantin Nov 11 '14 at 12:24
