I would like to know how to create a new url for each file upload. When people upload videos on the site, I would like the video to have its own url like this: “localhost/example.com/string”. For example, Youtube has a new url for each upload like this “https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dylkrgsloghntn” Is there a way for me to create a new url for each new post in php?
You don’t, or rather, it is already there.
You hit a page that looks up the video to play, in your example:
That is a get request with the key value pair v : Dylkrgsloghntn
So you are looking up, Dylkrgsloghntn on the page.
So are saying that I would use the get method in the backend to produce the URL? Like in the example, “watch” is the srcript, and “Dylkrgsloghntn” is the string added to the URL?
Not to produce it, it’s already there. You are just doing a lookup for the unique identifier that is passed with the url.
So “Dylkrgsloghntn” is the file name, which is the url/file path?
^ file (using htaccess to remove the tech used for the file type) also know as a URI
^ GET variable
^ value of v. Unique identifier to look up the video from the database.
