i use a software called viart shopping cart and it can sort out friendly urls as long at there is an htacess file. howver my hosting arrangeent doesnt allow for this and they have suggessted using your rewrite software:

they have siad that if i purchse this they will install this for me if i let them have the licence details and the download link.

just before i do this can i just check with you that i can achieve what i need for this:

Viart suggestion for htaccessfile for friendly urlsto work as:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /friendly_url.php [L]

Also they have suggested a 301 redirect as follows:

< http-equiv="Content-" content="text/; charset=utf-8">< name="ProgId" content="Word.">< name="Generator" content="Microsoft Word 11">< name="Originator" content="Microsoft Word 11"><link rel="File-List" href="file:///C:%5CDOCUME%7E1%5CKIMTAY%7E1%5CLOCALS%7E1%5CTemp%5Cmsohtml1%5C01%5Cclip_filelist.xml" target="_blank">< style>

Please Redirect to


Please Redirect to

if this is all possible and i can get some support to do this then i will go ahead and purchase.

will i be able to send the download link to my hosrters?

The .htaccess offered by Viart will work fine. As for redirects, they will look like provided below. The complete config is:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^managers\.gb\.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule (.*)$1 [NC,R=301,L]

RewriteRule ^index\.php$ / [NC,R=301,L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /friendly_url.php [L]
