How to extend this with DBD SQL or DBD Hash file

This question is a follow-up to this tutorial:

Really clear and useful tutorial, thank you! I have no questions.

I plan to take this idea and extend it into a URL shortener/redirect service as a project.

  1. I am making an URL shortener project. Like Bitly.com.
  2. Pretty sure I can have the LAMP stack create a flat file and then Apache will access the file for redirects.
  3. Reading DBM syntax now in the Apache docs for DBM hash.
  4. Benefitted so far from a long thread about implementing a shortener at StackOverflow. And which chars to use, also at Stack.
  5. My project is only half built (taking much longer than the three days I budgeted!). Will see if DBM mapping in Apache works.
