URL rewrite(SLUG) and URL redirection (htaccess)


Below is my php code(qs.php). This file contain url links. Pretty links created by using SLUG.

<html> <head></head> <body> <?php function create_slug($string){ $slug=preg_replace('/[^A-Za-z0-9-]+/', '-', $string); $slug = strtolower($slug); return $slug; } $slugurl= create_slug('SLUG-text-testing-purpose-only'); $file = 'qs1'; //this is a php file qs1.php $id = '12345678'; //testing ID $complete_url = $file."/".$id."/".$slugurl; ?> <a href ="<?php echo $full;?>"> This is a test link created by slug</a> </body></html>

Above link appear like this - http://localhost/qs/qs1/12345678/slug-text-testing-purpose-only


QS is a directory where all files are placed. QS1 is a php file (qs1.php)

I want to get two variable from above link 12345678 & slug-text-testing-purpose-only. as qs1.php is file where i get these two variables from $_GET['var1'] & $_GET['var2'];

I know it can be achieved by .htaccess. i tried multiple options but they are not working as i am getting 404.

.htaccess file is placed on QS directory.

Below are the options i had tried.

RewriteEngine On RewriteRule ^qs/([0-9]+)/([^/]+)$ qs1.php?var1=$1&var2=$2 [L] RewriteRule ^/([^/]*)/([^/]*)$ /qs1.php?var1=$1&var2=$2 [L] RewriteRule ^qs/([^/]+)/([^/]+)/?$ /qs1.php?var1=$1&var2=$2 [QSA,L] RewriteRule /qs/(\d+)/(.*) qs1.php?id=$1&slug=$2 [QSA,L]

I am very new to htaccess and url redirect.

Please advise.



You can put this code in /qs/.htaccess

RewriteEngine On RewriteBase /qs/ RewriteRule ^([^/]+)/(\d+)/([^/]+)$ $1.php?var1=$2&var2=$3 [NC,L]

Now, you can go to http://localhost/qs/qs1/12345678/slug-text-testing-purpose-only and you'll get the same content as /qs/qs1.php?var1=12345678&var2=slug-text-testing-purpose-only


RewriteEngine On RewriteRule ^qs/qs1/(\d+)/(.+)$ qs1.php?var1=$1&var2=$2 [NC,L]
