I've solved it by adding "NS".
RewriteRule ^jobs/details/default\.aspx$ /jobs/details/%1/%2? [NS, NC,R=301,L]

And it's working now.
Two questions still remain, see below.


We've purchased another license of Helicon Ape for our new server.
We're still using Helicon Ape version on the other (older) server and the rules below are working fine:

RewriteEngine On

DBDriver mssql
DBDParams "Data Source=xxxxx;Initial Catalog=xxxxx;User ID=xxxx;Password=#xxxx"
DBDPrepareSQL "SELECT [seo_jobtitle] FROM vw_jobs_rewritten WHERE [Job_ID][email protected]" seo_map_select_jobs

RewriteBase /

# Jobs
# Redirect to SEO-friendly URL
RewriteMap map_dbd dbd:seo_map_select_jobs
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} id=(\d+) [NC]
# RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^(?:page)?id=(\d+)$ [NC]
RewriteCond ${map_dbd:%1|NOT_FOUND} (.*)
RewriteCond %2 !NOT_FOUND
RewriteRule ^jobs/details/default\.aspx$ /jobs/details/%1/%2? [NC,R=301,L]
## Rewrite to original URL
RewriteRule ^jobs/details/(\d+)/[^/]+/?$ /jobs/details/default.aspx?id=$1 [NC,L,NS]
# /Jobs

But when i copy these rules to our new server with Helicon Ape version it will cause an infinite loop..?
The url IS rewritten though, but it cannot resolve the original url anymore and thus causing a loop.

  1. Do i have to use mod_seo instead of mod_dbd module?
  2. Is there any way to get rid of the ID (6751) in the rewritten url?

Recently we've been experiencing some customer reports regarding loops.
So we had to edit HeliconApe and re-create functions of NS flag. Now NS does what it did for you.
