Questions tagged [mod-rewrite]

mod_rewrite is a URL rewriting module for the Apache web server. It is commonly used for so-called "pretty" URLs because of its ability to redirect on the server side (transparent to clients and their browsers), but also provides the power and flexibility to perform various request handling tasks beyond simple substitutions.
