.htaccess redirect not working


Recommended Posts

I have a shortner website that I am working on. Just a little project that I am doing in hopes that i can learn better.


Anyways my issue is that the shortened links are not working like they should. Actually they are not working at all. I keep getting a 404 page.


When I do something like shortit.org/123456 I get the 404 page.


shortit.org is the site that I am working on.


Here is the redirect code

    if(isset($_GET['code']) && !empty($_GET['code'])) {
        $code = $_GET['code'];



here is the redirect function

function redirect($code){
    $code = mysql_real_escape_string($code);
        $url_query = mysql_query("SELECT `url` FROM `urls` WHERE `code` = '$code'") or die (mysql_error());
        $url = mysql_result($url_query, 0 , 'url');
        header('Location:' . $url);


here is my .htaccess

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^([a-zA-Z0-9]+)$ index.php?code=$1
