Read: In the name of thy Lord Who createth, Createth man from a clot. Read: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, Who teacheth by the pen, Teacheth man that which he knew not. Nay, but verily man is rebellious That he thinketh himself independent!. Lo! unto thy Lord is the return. (Sura Alalaq 96:8)

Using flags with rewrite rule

Created On: 09 May, 2017: 16:53:46 - Tags : web servers


The behavior of Rewrite commands can be modified using flags. Some of these flags take arguments. Rewrite supports several flags. The [R] flag causes an external redirection. It means the url in the browser changes when the [R] flag is used. The [R] flag takes an argument with a default value of 302. This argument is the http status code of the http response.

The default behavior of the RewriteRule is to cause an internal redirection to the target path. It means the url in the browser does not change. The target path is the filesystem path but it may be given as a url

The [L] flag signals that the processing of the mod_rewrite commands should stop.
