Straight forward Apache URL rewriting tutorial I can't find one. chris_f
I am some to be learning PHP and Apache. I am getting to grips which PHP quickly, however, I am looking to learn Apache from a url rewriting perspective. I have looked though DMOZ and tried loads of se queries (even a site search here). Can anyone point me to a simple apache url rewriting guide.
Take it you've already read the horses' mouth:
Watch your server load if you have a busy site...
Thanks for the server load warning.
I could be me but the document seems to go over my head a bit. I only really want a basic tutorial. It could be because I'm not concerntrating at the minute.
Some good examples might help in the documentation.
This [ webmasterworld.com] may be TOO basic but it's a start... There are plenty of "real world examples" in this doc [ httpd.apache.org] but it's NOT light reading.
<added>Much of this goes over most people's heads at first read Chris. DON'T feel like the only one! :) </added>
Go get O'Reilly's book on regular expressions. It's almost necessary, IMHO. The rest of mod_rewrite is trivial in comparison to the regular expressions.
Also, we have a mailing list for SEO rewriting techniques that has about 200 members, but I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post the link here, so I can sticky you if necessary.
