    Hello. :)

    RewriteRule ^users/([A-Za-z0-9-]+)+$ /file.php?uname=$1
    Code (markup):
    how can i modify that to allow a space?

    I've tried the following (added space) but I get a "Internal Server Error" :

    RewriteRule ^users/([A-Za-z0-9- ]+)+$ /file.php?uname=$1
    Code (markup):

    Should be fairly simple answer. Thank you for your time.

    :)

    Use \s instead of a space.

    Remove the last + sign.... whether or not it's causing the error, it's useless.

    + means "one or more", but the only thing being repeated is the [A-Z...] which already has a + after it.

    Let me know if that solves anything.

    Try escaping the dash.

    RewriteRule ^users/([A-Za-z0-9\-\s]+)$ /file.php?uname=$1

    getting closer :D Now I get a "Not Found 404"... The browser replaces the space with a %20 if that makes a difference.

    Thanks for you help!!

    ahh that works. :) Thanks. Although, I would like to limit the input. I guess until i find a solution for the other way I'll just do a little PHP validation.

    RewriteRule ^users/([^.]+)$ /file.php?uname=$1 [L]

    (.*) is anything. ([^.]+) is more limited, but I'm not sure if it would work with a space.

    I am trying to change redirect url1 to url2

    url1 = http://localhost/ad/profile/2/Vasim Padhiyar/

    url2 = http://localhost/ad/public_profile.php?id=2&name=Vasim Padhiyar

    i am using following code

    RewriteRule ^profile/(.*)/(.*)/$ public_profile.php?id=$1&name=$2 [L]
    Code (markup):
    The code only works if i type following url

    url1 = http://localhost/ad/profile/2/Vasim/

    Any idea ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    Kindly remove the space in between the file name to resolve the issue.
