    Nice URL for search engine

    Hey all,

    I'm using windows server 2003 with ASP.
    My web site URL look like:
    http://www.mysite.com/web/page.asp?id=432423&q=23424

    And I like to change it to:
    http://www.mysite.com/web/432423.htm
    (or something like that)

    There is any tool I can use for doing that?

    You can use ISAPI_Rewrite

    There are some components available for Windows Servers for this purpose, which do the ISAPI Rewrite job...

    Also take note that Windows Server 2003 (standard) does not comply with .htaccess files at all. If you intend to apply a rule to the URLs, over your server, and requires editing .htaccess file, it would not be quite possible to accomplish this task.

    Of course, if it's none-standard modules you're using, over Windows Server 2003, (like - you installed addons), these days - it could be possible. (wouldn't be the safest though - I'd still recommend to operate under Linux for this).

    Care to elaborate your statement with some proofs? It sounds like a complete nonsense to me.

    Actually in IIS, you catch the 404 to an ASP or ASP.NET page and then check the URL and parse out the page name or query string and then just redirect to appropriate area on your website.

    If you see the website properties, you will see that you can send 404 errors to an URL rather than just displaying the default error message.

    This could help you as well.
