domain.com/username (like facebook)

Postby silve69 » Sun Oct 21, 2012 11:22 am

Hello friends,
We have an online app (ExtJS+PHP+MySQL) and currently we have a folder for each user with profile pictures and albums of pictures... and for showing the user profile just needs: www.mydomain.com/users/usernameX
But... my client right now wants to show the profile like facebook: www.mydomain.com/usernameX
How can I do that WITHOUT create hundred of folders in my server root??? (I want to meet the actual structure with all the users folders inside the "users" folder)
Thanks in advanced!!!
Silver

Hello,

What you need is an apache rewrite rule.
