    I'm wondering if any of you can help with a little apache headache I'm having at the moment?

    I want to take a url like the following: www.domain.com/customername/appname and turn it in to the following: customername.domain.com/appname but for the life of me I can't seem to get it to work, any ideas?

    Heh, I was attempting a similar thing last night, though I was just trying to remove a directory name from the URI. Didn't manage it though but it wasn't critical.

    In your case, would something like this work?
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^domain\.com/(*.)/appname
    RewriteRule ^/(.*)$/appname http://$1.domain.com/appname [L]

    Note: I am abysmal at regular expressions (and apache stuff in general), so that's likely to fail as well.

    This page seemed pretty good though if you haven't come across it:

    Cheers for the reply mate. Even if it doesn't work completely as it should it's at least put me in the right the direction!
