Step 1:  Rename "path.php" to "path"

Step 2:  Add this to your Apache conf file:

        <Location /path>
                ForceType application/x-httpd-php

This causes "path" to be executed as a PHP script even though it does not
have a .php extension.

Step 3:  Add this to your "path" php script:

    // $PATH_INFO = the rest of the URI after dmb/

    // remove anything other than letters, numbers, dots, underscores,
    // and dashes, and put into an array

    // for example "trading/toptraders" will be an array consisting
    // of "trading" ($args[1]) and "toptraders" ($args[2]).  The / is

    ereg("(^[-_.\/a-zA-Z0-9]*$)", $PATH_INFO, $arg);
    $args = split( "/", $arg[1]);

Hope this helps.
