URL Shortener Scripts
Hi! I was wondering if any of you have experience working with existing URL shortening scripts.
I wanted to make one that just uses a flat file..I am wary of existing (non-custom) database types, feel it's way more secure to avoid.
But Sven informed me that scripts to make URL shorteners already exist. I didn't look into it at the time, to be honest.
Now that I am more consciously using GSA tools, I am looking more at the engines, a goal for the past five years. I am looking at SER engines that create links on URL shorteners.
Anyway, I want to make my own URL shorteners. Has been part of my plan, so just getting to make it happen.
I guess starting with what's free and open source and out there is fine.
