Please help me! I am new to this, and I am trying to write a website that uses small urls (using mod rewrite)
It's generally working, but some of my urls are hex encoding characters and leaving symbols which seem to be upsetting php (like semi-colons).
I've seen a couple of guides on fixing this, but can't get my head around it!
#redirect from /base/ to index page script
RewriteRule ^base/([*]+) http://192.168.27.128/index.php?request=$1 [NE,NC]
BUT address: http://192.168.27.128/base/This_is_o...9;s_Great!
(note this was This_is_our_test_&_it's_Great! the non-alphas have been encoded by apache/the browser or something).
When echoing the $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] I get:
I added the NE thinking it would stop encoding the hex.
New to this and first post to the forum, would be grateful for any help!
