Need easy database solution with search engine friendly pages
Anyone know of one?

 12:39 pm on Apr 26, 2002 (gmt 0)

Having a hard time trying to find an easy to set up solution. There must be one since so many people know the problems with indexing dynamic urls...right?

Please let me know. The last price change on one product took me 6 hours of hand coding and I'm a little tired of that.

Thanks - Craig

hi craig
you might find the answers you need on the server side scripting forum. there are plenty of discussions there about dynamic URLs and mod_rewrite.

easy doesn't seem to be the best word here no matter what solution you find. Depending on the number of products/pages it can be very time consuming to switch to a DB.

A pair of questions then to help us answer better.

Are you looking for an "out of the box" solution or a scripting language/DB combo?
What type of server are we talking about and does your host already offer some options?

Sticky me if you want... We have a giant system in place for generating "static" look-and-feel pages that are done entirely dynamicly. We also cache results for the high speed sites. The next rev won't even have meta data in the URL.

Craig try a Yahoo Store. They allow for databases and investing in a Yahoo Store is the best thing I have done on the internet.

I have just had one designed, as i could no find one on the market. I cannot give it to you, due to the licence, but you might get a good deal...
Sticky me if interested.

It is possible to implement this with osCommerce so long as the server is configured correctly. I recommend doing a google search for web hosts that offer osCommerce and asking them if they can set this feature up for you. This may also be possible with RedHat interchange but I'm not sure yet.

Thanks for the help, but I think I found a decent solution called DBtoWeb here:


I've still got to test it out, though.
