mod_rewrite Boot Camp

More than half of the questions asked on any Apache HTTP Server support forum are about mod_rewrite. Part of this is due to the complexity of mod_rewrite, and part of it is the enormous amount of misinformation about mod_rewrite that appears on hundreds of websites. This class will sweep aside the mythology, and get straight down to the practical science of crafting and using RewriteRules in your Apache HTTPD configurations, and the perhaps equally important taks of knowing when to avoid mod_rewrite entirely, and use other methods.
