.htaccess file exceptions

Recommended Posts

Hi guys. I have a record shop online.

The following URL example shows the product info page without a problem:

http://www.mysite.com/tp/html/product/33/record1.html

Im using an .htaccess file as follows:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^product/([0-9]+)/(.*).html$ detail.php?id=$1 [L]

My problem is that the sound files are in a different folder on the server :

www.mysite.com/sf/soundfile.mp3

The mp3 sound files are not found or shown on the detail.page as they are in a different folder which doesnt have a rule associated with it. It doesnt need one as the mp3 file doesnt need SEO referencing.

How do i tell the .htaccess file to look in the sf  folder to find the mp3 files on my detail.php page?

thanks!

How are you referencing the mp3 files in your detail.php file?

You should reference them using a domain relative URL (with a leading slash), that should remove any need for a rewrite rule for them.

<audio src="/sf/sound.mp3">

Modify your .htaccess and tell it to ignore certain folders 

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^(sf|otherfolder|morefolders)($|/) - [L]
RewriteRule ^product/([0-9]+)/(.*).html$ detail.php?id=$1 [L]

for multiple folders use PIPE "|" symbol.
