    rewrite urls


    hi,

    I have an web app that is written in php using mysql that normally runs on apache, but needs to be installed on IIS or WinServer 2000.

    Is there any process on ms servers that works like Apache's mod rewrite?

    My app produces urls like:
    using apache's mod rewrite, the user sees the same url as:
    I don't know much about ms products, and have searched this site and have not found an answer.

    any help appreciated.

    I don't think there is an IIS equivalent to mod_rewrite in Apache. I haven't run across one anyway.

    You can try the "Virtual Directory" feature of IIS 4+, but I do not know how to configure it....
