Hi all, I've got no problem with my coding, works perfectly fine on shared 1and1 hosting, but will it redirect properly with my 1and1 VPS, no. This is the case for a number of sites too which were all fine on shared hosting. .htaccess line in question; RewriteRule ^~(.*)/(.*).html$ a2pLink.php?postID=$2 Other rewrite rules are fine and I'm positive this is a config issue with the server as I've completely re-imaged too. Running Centos 5 64-bit and I'm also using Plesk 9. URL; http://mydomainname/~vintage-smoking-jacket-dressing-gown-silky-paisley-m/2572.html Should redirect to a2pLink.php which in turn sends it off to eBay. If there's an apache / php / 1and1 !! expert out there will to give a few minutes help in exchange for some beer vouchers please send me a PM. Much obliged.
