mod_rewrite example step by step

Follow the step-by-step instructions below to create a working mod_rewrite + URL Schema example same as what we have at DFF example.
DFF mod_rewrite example link:

Step 1 - Enter URL Schema

1. Login to ACP (affiliate control panel)
2. Go to Settings > URL Schemas tab
3. Create a new URL schema #1 with the following<<<seo>>>-<<<param>>>

inside the Product Price Comparison text box.

4. You can enter any Schema Name
5. Save the URL Schema


Step 2 - Add mod_rewrite in Apache httpd.conf or .htaccess file

Depending on your web server setting / environment, you must enter the following mod_rewrite rules in either httpd.conf (apache main configuration file) or .htaccess (per directory configuration file).

Apache 1.x or 2.x:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule .* - [F]
RewriteRule ^(.*)/compare_price-(.*)-([0-9]+)$ /compareprice.php?dffsku=$3 [L,QSA]

Lighttpd 1.x:

url.rewrite-once = ( 
	"^(.*)/compare_price-(.*)-([0-9]+)?(.*)$"		=>		"/examples/modrewrite/compareprice.php?dffsku=$3&$4"

Note: Most server require Web Server's process restart to load new configuration changes into effect.

Step 3 - Create compareprice.html or compareprice.php

Create a new HTML or PHP file at your ROOT directory name it compareprice. and put the following source into it:

For HTML (javascript):

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

For PHP:

  if($dffsku=="") { echo "Need DFFSKU<br>"; exit; }

Step 4 - Test the product price comparison page

Load the compareprice. page you have just created like this:

It should complain about missing DFFSKU. That is correct, don't panic
