Subject Re: FAQ - How do I hide "cocoon" in the URL
Date Wed, 12 Dec 2001 06:22:28 GMT
Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

I'll try to clarify what I mean.

When the user enters "http://www.place.com/" into the browser the page 
that is returned is "http://www.place.com:8080/cocoon/mount/MyWebSite/".

This is very easy to achieve with a redirect but then the user will have 
the URL "http://www.place.com:8080/cocoon/mount/MyWebSite/" in their 
browser - this is NOT what I want. Also they will be using the tomcat 
http rather than apache - this is also not what I want.

So... :)

Step 1 - get mopd_webapp running... No Problems. Now I can go to 
"http://www.place.com/cocoon" and I get the same result as I would have 
with "http://www.place.com:8080/cocoon".

So far so good. But I don't just want to get to cocoon, I want to get to 
a sub-site mounted in the 'mount' directory.

Now I want to be able to enter the URL "http://www.place.com/index.html" 
and get back the same result as 
"http://www.place.com:8080/cocoon/mount/MyWebSite/index.html".

ie. within apache I need to rewrite ALL url's for a virtual host so that 
'/cocoon/mount/MyWebSite' is inserted at the beginning of all requests - 
BUT I don't want to user to see this so I can't use a redirect.

This is where I get stuck. :)

Thanks again,

Phil
