Redirect IWP calls to WebDirect calls using Apache ?

Hello there,

 

After a bit of searching, i was not able to accomplish this…

 

If i want to replace a FileMaker IWP server by a FileMaker WebDirect server, i have to replace all old links to the newer; i will have of course regular web pages to update but also FileMaker databases which actually store old iwp url's.

 

However, i have a lot instances to update, and for more smoothly transition, i was wondering if it would be possible to use alias or redirection modules of Apache, and given that FileMaker 14 install its own instance of apache, you cannot use OS X Server interface. Since i am not familiar with apache commands in Terminal i would not loose a lot of time on this particularly if an expert call it definitely impossible ?!

 

In essence, i would like convert automatically calls like :

http://www.mywebserver.com/fmi/iwp/cgi?-db=MyPublicDatabase

to

http://www.mywebserver.com/fmi/webd#MyPublicDatabase

 

Any idea?

Thanks...

 

Fred
