Ever wanted to have some fancy URL for your website ?


18 Mar 2009

You are using some CMS but don’t really like the way it handles URL’s … ?

For example, instead of having “www.mysite.com/index.php?id=12”, you would like to have “www.mysite.com/love” ?

Well, MOD_SQLAlias may be the solution for you, it is an Apache2 module under LGPL, it “will intercept specific URI requests and dispatch them to the appropriate page to be served using a MySQL alias table“.

Basically, you can install this apache module and use it with your current website. It will be completly transparent and will work with your current CMS.

The project can be found on sourceforge here: Mod_SqlAlias on sourceforge
