Help to write ReWrite Rule

Postby jponnusamy » 31. May 2016 08:19

Dear All,
I am new to Apache, We have requirement to hide subfolder from User perspective like below:

Code: Select all
Existing URL: http://cmspweb1.com/sites/fr_CA/xxxx
Expecting URL: http://cmspweb1.com/sites/fr/xxxx


We dont have any folder called fr, So If I use below rewrite rule, its replacing fr_CA with fr, but getting 404 Error. Kindly please let me know if I missed anything.

Code: Select all
RewriteRule ^/sites/fr_CA/(.*) http://cmspweb1.com/sites/fr/$1




I tried Lot but nothing is working. Kindly please help me on this
Thanks
Jay

Of course, because you are doing it just in the wrong direction. You have to replace "fr" by "fr_CA", and not "fr_CA" by "fr".

Dear Nobbie,
Thanks for the reply.
Actually we dont have any folder called fr and we have only fr_CA, but we dont want to show fr_CA to client browser. and want to show fr instead of fr_CA only on browser. Mean fr should show fr_CA's contents.
Thanks
