Brian Moon's Blog:
ForceType for nice URLs with PHP
October 04, 2007 @ 09:37:00

On his blog today, Brian Moon talks about setting up ForceType directives in Apache, specifically how to make "friendly URLs" without having to use mod_rewrite (which might not be installed on your server).

This has been covered before, but I was just setting up a new force type on our servers and thought I would mention it for the fun of it. You see lots of stuff about using mod_rewrite to make friendly URLs or SEO friendly URLs. But, if you are using PHP (and I guess other Apache modules) you can do it without mod_rewrite.

There's three steps to the process - adding the directive to your Apache config, making the script able to handle the request, avoiding duplication of content and returning a 404 error when there's no matching data.
