php file url rewrite without using mod rewrite

i want the url to look like

I know that we can use mod rewrite but is there any options available better than that??

I came up with something like creating folder named blog in the root directory, and then put a index.php file in that folder and we can call this file by the following url

  1. What is the best way to rewrite or creating a fancy url?

  2. What is the security risk involved?

  3. Is there any performance issue to note?


remove the . use absolute path instead

<a href="/user.php">...</a>
