httpd.conf or .htaccess for apache WordPress redirect

This is simply a note to save this block of code should I need it again.

The server in question is one of many cloud instances, and local development machines, in an environment using PHP, JAVA, Surf, among other technologies.

In short, it’s a pretty complex implementation/configuration…

Some URLs are being rewritten, others forwarded, directory crawling is off, but…

a legacy WordPress blog is being converted to clean/pretty URLs for SEO purposes

(which “look” like directory folder URLs)

(rather than WordPress relying on URL parameters by default)

so, along with editing the WordPress Setting for this,

the following was added to the httpd.conf file:

<IfModule modrewrite.c>

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.+)$ /podcastInQuestionFolder/index.php [L]


Of course, quite similar code in the .htaccess within that folder would accomplish a similar aim.
