In this second post in my series, Mastering the AEM Dispatcher. In this post, we'll discuss how to support case-insensitive URLs in the AEM Dispatcher running on Apache httpd. For customers coming from websites hosted on case-insensitive web servers, such as Microsoft IIS, moving to Apache can be a challenge. In a case-insensitive web server, the URL http://www.site.com/my-page.html is functionally equivalent of http://www.site.com/My-Page.html. In Apache httpd, which is case-sensitive, these are two different URLs and requesting a page at My-Page.html when the page is named my-page.html will result in a 404 error. Further complicating things, you have two cases you'll need to handle when moving from a case-insensitive web server to AEM Dispatcher on Apache httpd. You will need to support both case-insensitive URLs as well as case-insensitive redirects, so visitors to your old pages are redirected to the new AEM page. Supporting Case Insensitive Requests Luckily, Apache has a module made...
