Dispatcher Doubt Regarding Mod Rewrite

Avatar

Level 2

Hi All,

 

I am exploring dispatcher rewrite rules and i'm fairly new to this.

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
#Enable this to debug the redirect logs
RewriteEngine on
 
# remove any trailing slash, if it's there.
RewriteRule ^(.+)/$ $1
 
#Shorten the URL
RewriteRule ^/content/we-retail/us/(.*).html$ $1.html [R,L]
#Map the root folder to the home page
RewriteRule ^/?$ en.html [R,L]
</IfModule>
 
The root path does resolve to en.html but it gives a 404 error instead of the internal redirect happening.
Is some additional configuration required for getting this working as expected?

Here with the rewrite rule RewriteRule ^/?$ en.html  you have achieved the redirection on only dispatcher now there is one step which is left i.e. on publish environment you need to  go to /system/console/configMgr and open Apache Sling Resource Resolver Factory(org.apache.sling.jcr.resource.internal.JcrResourceResolverFactoryImpl) and add in URL Mapping /content/we-retail/us/:/. Do not remove the already existing entry /:/ add after that. This is needed so that internally page can be  mapped to correct resource.

@binoyp6992037  You can either use sling mappings or configure Apache Sling Resource Resolver Factory for internal redirect to work
