Webmasters Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for pro webmasters. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've done searching for my answer and have tested a few solutions, but nothing has worked so far.

I'm trying to get a URL like this http://baseball.sports.com to rewrite to http://pro.sports.com/baseball-index.php.

However, I still need to keep the domain the same (http://baseball.sports.com). The reason being I have about 5 subdomains (baseball, football, soccer, etc.) that I want to run off the same code base (pro.sports.com).

Everything is on the same server. I'd be happy to answer any other questions that would help me get a resolution.

I truly appreciate any direction that can be given to me to solve this.

What are the solutions you have tested already but didn't work? –  Henning Makholm Nov 5 '12 at 21:06
Where is the webroot for baseball.sports.com and pro.sports.com? Are they the same directory? –  Jon Lin Nov 5 '12 at 23:38
if your directory structure on hosting is like /home/username/pro/ (for pro subdomain) and /home/username/baseball/, you can use same code on any domain by including source from real path. –  Aleksandar Dec 15 '14 at 16:20

Rewrite rules won't work across sub-domains, even on the same server.

You could use mod_proxy to make this happen. Configure baseball.sports.com to proxy the information that you want from the other subdomain.
