To learn how to apply them, please read Official Documents on apache.org. Below, we'll supplement on the configuration when applied on OSDN.

mod_cgi

Please view the Dynamic Contents of Project Web Page.

mod_rewrite

Mod_rewrite is an extremely strong URL mapping tool, but there are a few things you need to be aware of when using within .htaccess.

First of all, the rewriting engine is not enabled by standard, therefore it needs to be enabled for every directory. Also, for URL rewriting within the directory, the “RewriteBase” needs to be configured all together. Please also read the apache.org Official Documents (especially the RewriteBase section.)

Here, we'll show your some simple samples.

  • Mapping http://YOURPROJ.osdn.jp/foo.html to index.html within the same diretory.

Configure .htaccess which is right under /htdocs to look like below.

RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule foo.html index.html

  • From http://yourproj.osdn.jp/docsa/ and under, even when accessed for .htm, it will show the content of .html with the same name.

Configure .htaccess of htdocs/docs to look like below.

RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /docs
RewriteRule ^([^.]+).htm$ $1.html

  • Say there's a bulletin board that can access the target article with "/cgi-bin/bbs/bbs.cgi?no=NNN", and you want to make the article appear with the URL “/cgi-bin/bbs/articleNNN”.
RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /cgi-bin/bbs
RewriteRule ^article([0-9]+)$ bbs.cgi?no=$1
