I was reading a tutorial on Cool URI's.

I'm changing over to Linux from Windows but I need to finish a web site  
first in Windows before that can be completed. When I check the web site  
in localhost Windows puts %20 in the blank spaces (I'm sure you all know  

With the rewrite rule in httpd.conf I've got "/" going to "index.php"  
and "/news/" going to "news.php". When I upload the site will it work OK  
if I just replace the localhost part of the url (in the menu file) with  
the proper web site address?



instead of:


As the web address hasn't been redirected to the new web host will I be  
able to use the IP address of the web site's new location (i.e. after  
it's redelegated) to check it while it's still being propogated?

I do not believe that this will work.  You need to change the host that  
Apache is operating on to www.thiswebsite

This really isn't the correct group to post this question. Just put the
contents of "This Web Site" in the htdocs folder on your live server.
If you already have the ip address for your server then just open it. or whatever your ip address happens to be.
