passing in arguments with /

My guess is that they redirect any URL that doesn't link to an existing file or folder to the same PHP file (probably named index.php)


In that PHP file they read the value of $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], break it into the pieces they need (with explode(), for example) and use the information to determine which files and database records to show. (using include or require to load files, and those files load data from the database)


That's assuming they're using PHP. If it's not PHP then they'd have other ways to determine what's in the URL.
