Hello,

I've tried about 30 rewrites now and i cant get it to work..

I have a subdomain called "my" which is a folder on www.domain.com/my

Can someone help me with a rewrite that rewrites
my.domain.com/FOLDER to www.domain.com/index.php?var=FOLDER

All the rewrites ive tried cant break out of my my-directory.
I also want the URL to be hidden. No redirect.

Thanks guys and girls!

You can't, you are limited to the sub domain's document root. Instead you need to create a file in /my called rewrite.php (you could call it anything) and put the following in it
Code: Select all
<?php require('../index.php');

Then in a .htaccess file in /my
Code: Select all
Options +FollowSymLinks

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{SCRIPT_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{SCRIPT_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^([^/]+)/?$ /rewrite.php?var=$1 [QSA,L]
