    how to convert this url ?x.php?id=1 to this url: foo.com/merry-xmas-mom

    how does one convert ugly urls like

    http://www.foo.com/?id=34234342343


    to this google searchable url:

    http://www.foo.com/george-bush-is-my-hero/


    is this a PHP setting thing that needs to be changed? what would I google in order to find a decent tutorial to show me how to do this? currently my googles aren't helping me out..

    thanks

    You use mod rewrite-- it's an Apache webserver thing. Try www.modrewrite.com for starters.
