Rewrite to different kinds of php conditions

Recommended Posts

How would I got about using mod_rewrite to rewrite:


www.domain.com/index.php?home to www.domain.com/home


but also have


www.domain.com/index.php?profile=user_name to www.domain.com/username


I guess I should be clear about this part:


www.domain.com/index.php?profile=user_name to www.domain.com/username


That should be a variable $user_name, would be rewritten to the same value of the variable.




www.domain.com/index.php?profile=John would be rewritten to www.domain.com/John


Could I just order them in order of importance, like this:


RewriteRule ^/?([a-zA-Z0-9-]+)(?:/(.*))?$ index.php?$1
RewriteRule ^/?([a-zA-Z0-9-]+)(?:/(.*))?$ index.php?profile=$1


So things like /home would be caught first and see that value is in the php file. And when something isn't caught it would go to the next rewrite rule. I guess one issue is I have an else statement in the php file, so it will also return that, as opposed to going to the rewrite rule.
