lets say I have the following site
http://mysite.com/mydir/

I need a way do that is a user goes to mysite.com/mydir
they will be redirected to http://mysite.com/mydir/index.php.

I know index.php is the default, but I want this to be displayed in the address bar. can I use mod_rewrite, and if so how.

just to recap I want all valid combinations of urls to display http://mysite.com/mydir/index.php in the address bar. This includes mysite.com/mydir, mysite.com/mydir/index.php, http://mysite.com/mydir.

any help would be great

I used php instead to check the $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] for the presense of index.php. if not found I echoed a javascript window.location=index.php

that was enough for my needs.

and how about browsers without JavaScript?

Also keep in mind that your browser still requested a file, otherwhise you could not have used php-code on the server.
