rewrite rules conflicting [RESOLVED]

Recommended Posts

It seems to me that 2 of my rewrite rules are conflicting

RewriteRule ^([A-Za-z0-9]+)/([0-9]+)/?$ index.php?page=$1&id=$2
RewriteRule ^([A-Za-z0-9]+)/([0-9]+)/?$ index.php?page=$1&pagenum=$2

The first rule will work but the second rule won't.  If i reverse the rules the bottom one will work and the top one doesn't.

How do i sort it out so both rules work?

Its becuase your expressions are exactly the same. You need to change the rewrite slightly so the expressions are unique. Such as for your secound rewrite rule have this as the url format:

Where {pageNumberHere} is it'll be a number, eg:

So use this as the rewrite rule for your secound expression:
RewriteRule ^([A-Za-z0-9]+)/page([0-9]+)/?$ index.php?page=$1&pagenum=$2

Now both expressions are unique Apache is able work out with expression to use, whereas before they where the same and apache couldn't see the difference between the two expressions.

I think i understand why it doesn't work.

Is it to do with this bit [b]RewriteRule ^([A-Za-z0-9]+)/([0-9]+)/?$[/b] becuase they are both the same?

Could I rewrite this
[code]RewriteRule ^([A-Za-z0-9]+)/([0-9]+)/?$ index.php?page=$1&id=$2[/code]
to this
[code]RewriteRule ^([A-Za-z0-9]+)/image/([0-9]+)/?$ index.php?page=$1&id=$2[/code]

What I would like is a url like this
