URL Rewriting and Different Environments

Postby pfergi42 » Mon Jan 14, 2013 10:54 pm

I have implemented some URL rewriting using apache and the .htaccess file.

How have others done this when they have local development environment, and then also a staging and/or production environment?

Does anyone use git and also do this?

Joomla 2.5 comes with "Redirector" component which helps you redirect specific links to another ones.

You could use a different .htaccess file for the remote server and for the local environment

This sounds like a simple and correct configuration. Let me give it a try.

Have you tried it? The problem is solved or not?

Have not tried yet... there is code written that also plays a part, not just the .htaccess file.

Joomla comes with htaccess.txt, and the option to rewrite urls. So you have to first change the htaccess.txt file to .htaccess on the server, then login and in the configuration settings change SEF to on, and use .htaccess to on.
