Hello my rewrite rule is failling sometimes because my urls have % signs in them.
For example this url:
This is my rewrite rule:
RewriteRule ^product/([a-zA-Z]+)/([\sa-zA-Z0-9\-\+\.]+)/([0-9]+)/([A-Z0-9]+)/([a-zA-Z0-9]+) /product?&cat=$1&q=$2&page=$3&prod=$4&prodName=$5
How can I modify the 5th rule ([a-zA-Z0-9]+) to not fail on when there is a % in the product name ?
Gracias de antemano.

Perhaps, it's not
%20, but space. That is, the URL passed to rewrite adter urldecoding. If not, then just add percent sign to the range. (if yes — space).
---- Forget this part, I misunderstood the question ----
From what I get from the mod_rewrite documentation (http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/mod/mod_rewrite.html), you should not have to deal with hex encoded characters (I assume that from the following statement:
THE_REQUEST The full HTTP request line sent by the browser to the server (e.g., "GET /index.html HTTP/1.1"). This does not include any additional headers sent by the browser. This value has not been unescaped (decoded), unlike most other variables below.
In fact, using mod_rewrite would be practically impossible since you'd have to deal with that POR TODOS LADOS, e.g., you can always write %41 instead of 'A'.
--- But the following still is true ---
But your rewrite rule can't work, at least not with the request URL you posted: The last part of the regex "([a-zA-Z0-9]+)" is FAR too strict. In this case, it fails for the following reasons:
- It lacks a treatment of the percent sign, as in "70%"
- You forgot to include the underscore "_"
Try adding at least these two characters ("[a-zA-Z0-9%_]+") and it should work.
