Mod Rewrite and .htaccess  Reply with quote  

Most webmasters and people working with websites or blogs usually might have come across the two popular terms mod_rewrite as well as .htaccess.

First lets focus on the term mod_rewrite:

A quote for mod_rewrite:
“The great thing about mod_rewrite is it gives you all the configurability and flexibility of Sendmail. The downside to mod_rewrite is that it gives you all the configurability and flexibility of Sendmail.''
-- Brian Behlendorf
Apache Group


The mod_rewrite is an extremely powerful and useful module provide by Apache’s Web Server.Mod Rewrite uses the rewrite engine software in order to rewrite URL’s to make it more meaningful for humans as well as for better optimizations for search engines. Online Users generally prefer simple and meaningful URL’s to query string parameters.
Mod_rewrite supports an unlimited number of rules to provide a powerful URL mechanism.

Benefits of URL rewriting:
1.Makes site URL’s meaningful and search engine friendly .
2.It helps in not revealing the internal workings of a website to other users.

For example the url,
http://www.mynewsite.com/widgets.php?colour=blue

can be rewritten as
http://www.mynewsite.com/blue

.htaccess:
The above URL change can be provided by means of including the rewrite rules in .htaccess which is placed in a directory .These are directory level configuration files.The directives in the .htaccess files would apply to the directories and subdirectories where this file is placed.

Uses of .htaccess:
1.They provide security restrictions for directories.There is also the .htpasswd which accompanies this file and is used for providing username and password.

2.They are used rewrite complex URL’s to simpler ones.

3.They are used in changing a page when a server side error like HTTP 404 occurs

People can also obtain Web page hosting from other, alternative service providers. Personal web site hosting is typically free, advertisement-sponsored, or cheap. Business web site hosting often has a higher expense.

don`t get confuse with mod_rewrite and .htaccess,

Mod_rewrite supports an unlimited number of rules to provide a powerful URL mechanism.

.htaccess is file where we write rule for linux OS servers.

so If you are using Linux based servers than .htacces is essential for Mod_rewrite.
