modify .htaccess

Dear experts,

I wish to know some concept about htaccess file.

I've tried this code but doesn't work for removing the .php extension:

Options +FollowSymlinks
RewriteEngine on

Redirect /index.html /App/views/login.php

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME}.php -f
RewriteRule !.*\.php$ %{REQUEST_FILENAME}.php [QSA,L]

I was able to redirect but unable to strip the .php extension

Thanks.

Bit confused...
You are trying to link to php files without using the .php extension?


Change
   Redirect /index.html /App/views/login.php
to
   Redirect /index.html /App/views/login

Your rewrite should only be doing the rewrite if the filename minus .php doesn't exist.

   RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f
   RewriteRule !.*\.php$ %{REQUEST_FILENAME}.php [QSA,L]

Hi Gary,

I am new to the Rewrite syntax. I am not sure if I am doing it correctly. THanks

If there is a reference page on rewriteCond or rewriteRule that will be great.

I think you are wanting to remove the .php extension from any incoming links and do a 301

Then all (extensionless) links should point to the php page

???
Hi Gary,

You are absolutely correct! I need to redirect the page and each page will not show .php extension.
Hello Kinderly,

To hide .php extension use the below code in .haccess file:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^([^\.]+)$ $1.php [NC,L]

Open in new window


and for redirection Redirect /index.html /App/views/login.php to Redirect /index.html /App/views/login, use the below code:

Redirect /index.html /App/views/login

Open in new window


Thanks
Edwin
Hi Edwin,

THanks for the reply. I will use the code for now and I will also definitely look up the regular expression to see if I can adjust with other redirect rules as well. Thanks again
Sure :)
