    Post Friendly URLS in PHP and IIS!

    Ok when I got started with PHP and Apache, I always laughed at the people who had to find a solution for friendly urls with IIS and PHP, since there isn't any Apache available .

    Funny thing is, I ended up in the wrong boat as well and now need to develop a PHP application running on IIS, CGI-Mode. This means my favorite mod_rewrite of Apache isn't available .

    I can make the URLs like http://www.rooseveltrp.com/index.php/games/. But it just looks vague. So any tricks in IIS, or perhaps a magic in code itself that can help me generate urls like http://www.rooseveltrp.com/games/ ?

    Please post the solution here, when you will find one. Once I net this problem and have not found a solution. It seem MS is not aware of that.

    There is a mod_rewrite for IIS but it is not free.

    Roosvelt,

    I'm an enthusiast of mod_rewrite too and I recommend IIS Mod-Rewrite. It's fully compatible with mod_rewrite (not just similar or wannabe mod_rewrite) and also the Pro version supports .htaccess (the Pro is a bit pricey though, but if you really need it, it returns the money soon). Personally, I stuck with it as it is the most solid and stable solution I've tried.
