URL rewriting

The tracking functionality is implemented using URL rewriting, and the podcasts folder includes an .htaccess file with Apache mod_rewrite rules in it. This is to facilitate the tracking URL ending in the correct file extension for publishing via iTunes.

If you don’t have mod_rewrite or other URL rewriting available on your server, you’ll need to find an alternative method of achieving the same.
