Config: Windows 2000 server, Apache 2.0.50, mysql 4.0.20, php 4.3.8
I'd like to use clean URLs, and put the .htaccess parameters in the Apache config file (httpd.conf) instead of using the .htaccess file. This is not a problem as I have full access to the httpd.conf file.
1) one of the reasons for doing this is my understanding that using httpd.conf instead of .htaccess is better performance-wise. Can anybody confirm that this is correct ?
2) I tried to copy the content of the .htaccess file into the part of the httpd.conf file. However enabling clean URLs in the Drupal admin page does not work. I have seen a number of posts relating to problems with enabling clean URLs, but they all seem to relate to setups where .htaccess is used. I am wondering if the parameters should be put differently if httpd.conf is used. Would anybody who has done it this way be in a position to help ?
