Apache Configuration Question

How do I make URLs case insensitive in Linux server

I am working a website which is deployed on a Linux server. I have small changes to do on that. I have folder

read
. The requirement is that if I enter the URL
localhost:80/tom/Read
or
../READ
or
/read
it needs to navigate to
read.php
inside a
read
folder.

I created a file .htaccess under a root directory. Placed following code mention below in the file by seeing the page mentioned here

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /tom/

RewriteMap lc int:tolower
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} [A-Z]
RewriteRule (.*) ${lc:$1} [R=301,L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^system.*
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php/$1 [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php/$1 [L]

RewriteRule ![A-Z] - [S=26]
RewriteRule ^(.*)(A)(.*)$ $1a$3 [N,R=301]
RewriteRule ^(.*)(B)(.*)$ $1b$3 [N,R=301]
RewriteRule ^(.*)(C)(.*)$ $1c$3 [N,R=301]
RewriteRule ^(.*)(D)(.*)$ $1d$3 [N,R=301]
RewriteRule ^(.*)(E)(.*)$ $1e$3 [N,R=301]
RewriteRule ^(.*)(F)(.*)$ $1f$3 [N,R=301]
RewriteRule ^(.*)(G)(.*)$ $1g$3 [N,R=301]
RewriteRule ^(.*)(H)(.*)$ $1h$3 [N,R=301]
RewriteRule ^(.*)(I)(.*)$ $1i$3 [N,R=301]
RewriteRule ^(.*)(J)(.*)$ $1j$3 [N,R=301]
RewriteRule ^(.*)(K)(.*)$ $1k$3 [N,R=301]
RewriteRule ^(.*)(L)(.*)$ $1l$3 [N,R=301]
RewriteRule ^(.*)(M)(.*)$ $1m$3 [N,R=301]
RewriteRule ^(.*)(N)(.*)$ $1n$3 [N,R=301]
RewriteRule ^(.*)(O)(.*)$ $1o$3 [N,R=301]
RewriteRule ^(.*)(P)(.*)$ $1p$3 [N,R=301]
RewriteRule ^(.*)(Q)(.*)$ $1q$3 [N,R=301]
RewriteRule ^(.*)(R)(.*)$ $1r$3 [N,R=301]
RewriteRule ^(.*)(S)(.*)$ $1s$3 [N,R=301]
RewriteRule ^(.*)(T)(.*)$ $1t$3 [N,R=301]
RewriteRule ^(.*)(U)(.*)$ $1u$3 [N,R=301]
RewriteRule ^(.*)(V)(.*)$ $1v$3 [N,R=301]
RewriteRule ^(.*)(W)(.*)$ $1w$3 [N,R=301]
RewriteRule ^(.*)(X)(.*)$ $1x$3 [N,R=301]
RewriteRule ^(.*)(Y)(.*)$ $1y$3 [N,R=301]
RewriteRule ^(.*)(Z)(.*)$ $1z$3 [N,R=301]


But it is not working.

I am new to Linux environment. I don't know about mod_speling. Is that a file? Where it will be located in Linux server?

Answer

You can easily make the apache webserver ignore the case by using the mod_speling module, which is part of the standard apache distribution:

CheckSpelling On
CheckCaseOnly On

After restarting httpd you can access read as Read or READ or read.
