Rewrite Folder To Subfolder

- 1 answer

Sorry for this basic question but dealing with apache is a long time ago. A subfolder has moved from /download to /images/download. I now like to rewrite it in .htaccess.

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/download/$
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/download/images$
RewriteRule (.*) /images/download/$1 [R=302,L]

I would expect that

http://example.com/download/literatur/a/online.pdf

would be rewritten to

http://example.com/images/download/a/online.pdf

but it is not. Rewrite in general is working (mod_rewrite is enabled). What do I oversee?

Your 1st rewrite condition is making your rule always fail because URI is not just /download it is actually /download/<whatever-else>.

You can use this rule instead in site root .htaccess:

RewriteEngine On

RewriteRule ^download/ /images%{REQUEST_URI} [R=302,L,NC,NE]

This rule will match any URI that starts with /download/ and will redirect this request to /images/<URI>
