Getting Rewrite to work properly


Recommended Posts

When you don't do something for a long time.. it slips from you! Or at least it does for me.


RewriteRule ^([A-za-z]+)$ index.php?dir=$1 [L]


What I want to accomplish is:






the index.php file within /pix will use the Tugboat or Tree as variables (via GET). Though.. the tricky part is that Tree an Tugboat will actually be directories with photos in them.


The idea was to have /pix handle URL requests to display the photos within the specified directories. I don't want people to access the directories.


Can it be done? Can we trick Apache into thinking there are no directories, when there are?


Just creating a really quick and easy photo thing for myself. All i have to do is drop the photos into a directory and then blah.com/pix/racecar will allow me to display the photos within that directory via the index.php file that will style the single page.
