I am working on a site which sits on codeigniter framework. I have to now give users "username as subdomain". Have added the DNS entry, the ServerAlias - stuck up with a redirect in .htaccess. Am using the following code in my .htaccess.
My request URL will be - http://username.mydomain.com/profile.html
 I want the path to be translated to -  /index.php/profile/index/username
while I am getting - /index.php/profile.html/index/username

Somehow i am not able to get rid of .html

NOTE: I do not want to hardcode "profile" as it will be dynamic. Will be adding more RewriteCond to the code once get this working

Any and all help will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^(www\.)?mydomain\.com$ [NC]
RewriteCond $1 ^profile
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www\.)?([^.]+)
RewriteRule ^(.*) /index.php/$1/index/%2 [L]

Check your application/config/config.php for this line: $config['url_suffix'] = ""; and make sure it is empty.
