Is there a way I can change the HTTP Request Method from POST to GET using apache modules such as mod_rewrite or 3rd party module ?

The reason I'm doing this is to minimize server side changes as I'm doing this for a demo.

If you are talking about mod_rewrite. This is a server side change. Also, not all POST requests can be changed to GET. The URL has a maximum allowed length. For example, this is not possible if you posting files. – Khaled Dec 5 '11 at 15:21
no the POST data will be zero. so no problem with max allowed length. I just want to change the request method from POST to GET from apache config if possible – user32425 Dec 5 '11 at 15:28
