Looking for a more efficient way to do this...

Here is part of our current .htaccess file:

Code: Select all
# aaa section
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} aaa/(.*)$
RewriteRule ^aaa/(.*)$ aaa.php?a=$1 [L]

#bbb section
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} bbb/(.*)$
RewriteRule ^bbb/(.*)$ bbb.php?a=$1 [L]

#ccc section
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ccc/(.*)$
RewriteRule ^ccc/(.*)$ ccc.php?a=$1 [L]


What I'm trying to achieve is the relevant PHP script being called depending on the REQUEST_URI, e.g. if the REQUEST_URI contains aaa, then aaa.php is used, but only id the REQUEST_FILENAME is not a directory or real file.

Does anyone know whether the same thing can be achieved without replicating all of the RewriteCond statements as I've done here?

Any help much appreciated.

Thanks.

Try
Code: Select all
Options +FollowSymLinks

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{SCRIPT_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{SCRIPT_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^(aaa|bbb|ccc)(/(.*))?$ /$1.php?a=$3 [L]


Or (if you don't want to list each filename)
Code: Select all
Options +FollowSymLinks

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{SCRIPT_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{SCRIPT_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/$1.php -f
RewriteRule ^([^/]+)(/(.*))?$ /$1.php?a=$3 [L]
