Convert Incoming URL

Recommended Posts

Using Mac OS X Leopard Server's Apache, does anyone know if it's possible to take a URL like http://domain.com/1234 and reinterpret it so that it's executed as http://domain.com/index.php?param=1234, and if so, how I would go about it?

Thanks,

Chuck

Hi Chuck,

yes, this is possible. You can solve it with an .htaccess-file in the doc-root of your server.

In the .htaccess you can do some rewriting-stuff like

RewriteEngine on

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !.php

RewriteRule ^/?([^/]*.html?|[^./]*)[:P;,.]*$ index.php?goto=$1 [L,NS]

In this case the parameter after domainname.com/blabla will be passed as index.php?goto=blabla

!!! You have to enable "Allow all overrides" (I don't know how this is exactly called in an US-MAC OS) within Server-Admin / Web / Domain / Options. Otherwise .htaccess will be ignored.
