Hi all.
I have an issue when my web site url. It has to be exactly as on the server.
If for instance people is typed in stead of People is fails to load. I'd like my server to accept either.
Does anyone know of a way round this?

The domain name -- the part before the ".com" for example -- can be either UPPERcase, lowercase, or MiXeDcase. For example, each of these will work:

http://www.GOOGLE.com
http://www.google.com
http://www.GoOgLe.com

The part of a URL after the "/" (after the ".com") usually has to be exactly as created. If when you created a foldername, you used say FoLdErNaMe, that is exactly what users would need to type in to get to that folder. For example,

http://www.google.com/services will work, but
http://www.google.com/sErViCeS will not.

Same with the pagename. If you created it as say PageName.html, then that is what the user would need to type in to see that page.

Thanks Spy. I was hoping to avoid that.
It is what it is.

No what you mean. Windows OS allows laziness, most (if not all) Linux varieties does not. In Windows iT.txt it.txt and It.txt all point to the same file. In Linux, each is a different file.
