I want to a rewrite rule such that if a user goes to the URL
example.org/stuff/junk.jpg the rule will process and end up at
re-writer.php but if the user goes to
example.org/stuff/hackingisawesome/junk.jpg the rule will not be triggered and they will get a standard 404 (or a page, if one should exist).
I can't tell, based on the environmental variables, if this is possible without some fairly fancy regex.
So does anyone know of either:
a) a way this is already built into the mod_rewrite syntax, or
b) a good, reliable way of handling this with regular expressions?
Links to documentation or tutorials welcome. I'm just feeling clueless on where to go next.
Oh, and I can imagine the ways I could simply have the script that the rule redirects to simply deliver the 404, but I'd rather only use the rule when the conditions exist.
RewriteRule ^stuff/[^/]+$ re-writer.php
This will rewrite all requests to
/stuff/â€¦ with only one additional path segment to re-writer.php.
