1. only works with apache RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^Product-name RewriteRule (.*) /beta/index.php?main_cat_id=8 [L] 2. your php decodes the url without any webserver dependencies $query=explode("/",$_SERVER[REQUEST_URI]); $main_cat_id=$query[1];

Hi, I am sorry, but i am really new to this , and I found the best way to SEO cheap is to learn I did the following and it gave Internal Server Error to all my pages including main Options -Multiviews RewriteEngine On RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^Product-name RewriteRule (.*) /beta/index.php?main_cat_id=8 [L] $query=explode("/",$_SERVER[REQUEST_URI]); $main_cat_id=$query[1];

This is not htaccess rule: $query=explode("/",$_SERVER[REQUEST_URI]); $main_cat_id=$query[1]; Try only this: RewriteEngine On RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^Product-name RewriteRule (.*) /beta/index.php?main_cat_id=8 [L]

How to you expect that to work when you have to different domains.You can use RedirectMatch to fix this problem.
