I'm looking for step by step resource about how to rewrite URLs and have a few specific questions.
I've read the documentation on
mod_rewrite in Apache, but I still find myself a little lost.
If I have
example.com/products.html, can I change this to appear as
example.com/products? For that to happen, do I make all of my links point to
/productsand then have a rewrite rule that directs
/products.html? Or is it the other way around?
Also, for PHP forms, I've noticed that I can't have a form action that points to a directory: for example, it requires
/mail/index.phpinstead of just
mod_rewrite fix this too?
