Fix URL Rewrite Issues on osCommerce Site


Job Description

I have a very large osCommerce website which I am currently trying to migrate to a new server. What I need is some assistance with is getting the site working again the way it was on the old server.

Currently, everything seems to be working with the exception of links to pages, categories, or products which should resolve to the SEO friendly URLs set in the admin area.

The osCommerce version is 2.2 MS2 and is supposed to be using the Ultimate SEO URLs contribution. The new server is running the same version of PHP, however, I'm thinking something is different (presumably with the server environment itself).

The site is already located at the new server (mt); this includes all the files and the main osCommerce database.

Please apply only if you have experience working with heavily modified osCommerce installations. Apache server configuration experience or knowledge of using the mod_rewrite extension will most likely be necessary to complete this task successfully.

In your cover letter, please let me know where this snippet of code is from and what it should do:

RewriteRule ^(.*)-p-(.*).html$ product_info.php?products_id=$2&%{QUERY_STRING}

If you know what this is and have used similar expressions before, you probably have what it takes to fix my site's issue.

Thank you for your time.
