apache website question


on my website i want to set each page to not show the file name in the URL.

Make this...
http://www.whatever.com/file.php
http://www.whatever.com/directory/file.php

Look like this...
http://www.whatever.com/
http://ww.whatever.com/directory/

If you dont understand what i mean, check out cnn.com for an example.

cnn does display page names on some occasions.

I think what you want to do is look at the DirectoyIndex directive in httpd.conf (or in an .htaccess file).

Use a single frame frameset.

Most of the time an index type file will not have to specified in the URL to display as well.. Sometimes when you just see something like http://www.whatever.com/directory/
Its just defaulting to the index file in the /directory your viewing at.

But yeah, easiest way around this would be to setup frames or use frames with your pages.. like mentioned above.

I fail to see how that is easier - you would need a frame in each directory. If you have common page names like latest.php or myindex.php in each directory it is easier to make a one time change to the DirectoryIndex directive. Even creating an htacess file in each directoy is easier than creating a frameset.

cool thanks everyone. Looks like it's more trouble than its worth and going to frames for every page would be a nightmare.
