Subject [greenstone-users] adding mod_rewrite to Apache
Hi,

I installed Greenstone on Linux. Apache was included as part of the installation. I am attempting to use an Apache module called mod_rewrite but it was not included as part of the installation. There are no '.so' files in the modules folder.

My idea is to use the module to shorten the web address from

http://www.mydomain.com/greenstone?a=p&p=about&c=test3

to

http://www.mydomain.com<http://www.mydomain.com/>

and

http://www.mydomain.com/greenstone?e=p-010-00-off-test3--00-1----0--0direct-10---4-------0-1l--11-en-50---20-about---00-3-1-00-0-0-11-1-0utfZz-8-00&a=d&cl=CL4

to

http://www.mydomain.com/year

I believe the mod_rewrite module is the best way of doing this.

How do I add it to Apache at this stage?


Any help would be much appreciated.

Regards,

John
