I'm trying to replace this:
/directory1/directory2/index.php?chapter=introduction
with
/directory1/directory2/introduction or /directory1/directory2/introduction/

so far I have this, but its throwing out an internal server error
Code:
Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/directory1/directory2/([a-z]*)
RewriteRule ^(.*) /directory1/directory2/index.php?chapter=%1 [L]



I don't get it because this does an identical thing but with numbers and works fine. They are in different directories so are not clashing with each other in some way.
Code:
Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/directorya/directoryb/([0-9]*)/([0-9]*)
RewriteRule ^(.*) /directorya/directoryb/review.php?c=%1&p=%2 [L]


what am I missing?

Also do you have any way of looking at the server logs?

Now I just get a 404 Sad
If I stick .html on the end then that works perfectly, but I'd rather have it the other way.

Theres fair number of these from my IP
Request exceeded the limit of 20 internal redirects due to probable configuration error. Use 'LimitInternalRecursion' to increase the limit if necessary. Use 'LogLevel debug' to get a backtrace.

Oh here's the problem: you're catching everything, including directory2/index.php, and redirecting it to directory2/index.php. So you're going round in circles. (At least that's what I'm guessing Very Happy)

I think you'll have to put index.php somewhere else...

Just to let everyone know how this was eventually resolved (with Daniel's help Very Happy ), I decided to abandon the directory and am using the following:

http://www.mydomain.com/directory1/directory2/introduction.chapter
Code:
Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/directory1/directory2/([a-z]*).chapter
RewriteRule ^(.*) /directory1/directory2/index.php?chapter=%1 [L]


Although it will work, with something like this (but I wasn't keen on that Smile )

http://www.mydomain.com/directory1/directory2/c_introduction/
Code:
Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/directory1/directory2/c_([a-z]*)
RewriteRule ^(.*) /directory1/directory2/index.php?chapter=%1 [L]
