Forgive a newbie-ish question here, but I've not been long in the Apache /
I'm just learning about mod_rewrite, and a question occurred to me. Once
Apache has rewritten a url, the php page can (obviously) see the *rewritten*
url and access it via $_GET. But does php have any access to the *original*
url? I'm told that Apache *does* expose both urls (original and rewritten),
it's just a question of whether the php module also exposes both.
Re: Mod_rewrite question - does php expose the original url?
PHP can access the requested URI (seen in the browser's address bar) is
in $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']. AFAIK, there isn't a direct entry of the
target URI (or query string) set in the $_SERVER array...
