Apache Configuration Question

Why isn't my htaccess RewriteRule working for my query strings?

I am moving an ASPX site to Wordpres -- from an IIS server to Apache -- and I am having problems getting the pages with query strings to redirect. I looked into the Apache documentation and am trying to use mod_rewrite, but so far no luck.

For example I would like to redirect these pages:


www.mysite/Product/Product.aspx?mapid=324$ to
www.mysite/blue-widgets/widget7/
www.mysite/Product/Product.aspx?mapid=681$ to
www.mysite/blue-widgets/widget12/
www.mysite/Product/Product.aspx?mapid=841$ to
www.mysite/blue-widgets/widget82/


Here is where I am at. I have tried several iterations of this but can't get it to work. I am starting to think that it might have something to do with first few Rules, which were generated by the server and Wordpress. The site is an addon domain, which the server treats like a subdomain.

My rewrites are the last three. Any ideas why these aren't working? Thanks for any help.

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /~username/
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /~username/mysite/index.php [L]

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^mapid=324$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^/Product/Product\.aspx(.*)$ ^https://www.mysite/blue-widgets/widget7/? [L,R=302,NC]

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^mapid=681$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^/Product/Product\.aspx(.*)$ ^https://www.mysite/blue-widgets/widget12/? [L,R=302,NC]

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^mapid=841$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^/Product/Product\.aspx(.*)$ ^https://www.mysite/blue-widgets/widget82/? [L,R=302,NC]

</IfModule>

Answer

I believe the following will work:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^mapid=324$ [NC]
RewriteRule /Product/Product\.aspx https://www.example.com/blue-widgets/widget7/? [L,R=302,NC]

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^mapid=681$ [NC]
RewriteRule /Product/Product\.aspx https://www.example/blue-widgets/widget12/? [L,R=302,NC]

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^mapid=841$ [NC]
RewriteRule /Product/Product\.aspx https://www.example/blue-widgets/widget82/? [L,R=302,NC]

RewriteBase /~username/
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /~username/mysite/index.php [L]
