    Rewrite URL with mod rewrite - possible?

    Rambo79

      Hi

       

      Before our apex site goes live on the Internet I want to mask the URL and display a friendly URL, to improve the security and usability and seo benefits of having a friendly url

       

      So for

       

      http://www.mydomain.com/apex/f?p=103:2

       

      it would be

       

      http://www.mydomain.com/sports/shirts

       

      and

       

      http://www.mydomain.com/apex/f?p=103:10:14249984563965::NO:::

       

      would be

       

      http://www.mydomain.com/special-offers

       

      How can this be achieved in APEX?  The site sits in a JAVA container and is served by Tomcat which is behind a MS proxy / firewall. 

       

      Will I need to install a web server to enable URL rewriting, and if so how would I write the rules to rewrite the URLs?
