I'm new in PHP. I'm studying a web that a costumer has ordered.
There is a thing that I can't understand. There is an image with a link to an url that doesn't exists:
Code: Select all
<a href="../dir1/flats" target="_blank"><img src="../img/flats.jpg" alt="flats to rent" />
In the folder dir1 does exists no web.
If I run this web in the server I can't understand how, but a web appears with this address. But when I run it in my localhost, the navegator says that the url doesn't exists.
I've read in Google some sites where speaks about how to create an hiperlink in php, but I can't understand. Can anybody tell me how it works or a link where to learn it?
Thanks very much

im a little unclear on what you are asking here but if i have it right then the folder that the anchor tag is targeting doesn't actually exist but on the website you get a page to load at that address.
my best guess would be that the live version of the wibsite is using a .htaccess rewriteRule to direct the request elsewhere.
if this is the case then on the webserver (most likley the root) will have a file called .htaccess
int the file you will find a line something like RewriteRule ^dir1/flats$ file.php?location=$1 [L, QSA]
i could be going in the wrong direction here but if this is the case read up on apache's rewrite engine
