how to remove *.php extension in address url ?


Recommended Posts

I have a question about apache.

I have WAMP version 3.1.9

apache 2.4.39

I want to remove the *.php extension in the url

in the .htaccess file which I placed in the directory ; I added the following code

 RemoveType *.php

but still when going to a page I see the php extension

in the apache pages I read that the loaded module should be mod_mime 


(i can see its loaded when checking php_info() ) 

still I dont have any result. 

What more directives are needed?

Or is there another approach for removing file extensions?

I tried to put this in the htaccess file

AllowOverride All
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^([^\.]+)$ $1.php [NC,L]

But this makes the request crash

the apache error logs tells: 


[Tue Feb 25 13:52:53.697348 2020] [core:alert] [pid 10960:tid 1236] [client ::1:50614] C:/wamp64/www/mydirectory/.htaccess: AllowOverride not allowed here, referer: http://www.myvirthost.loc

Why is this error showing up?

I have this direction placed in the vhosts file


 Options +Indexes +Includes +FollowSymLinks +MultiViews
    AllowOverride All
 	   Require all granted

Could it be any other script that still overrides this ? I tried the same ones in the httpd.conf file but I am not sure how to do it. 

Is the httpd directive more determining for instance ?

What else could it be?

I know this issue is resolved but below code works for me so you can check this.

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME}\.php –f
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ $1.php [NC,L]

You have to add this code in .htaccess file to remove .php extension.

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME}\.html –f
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ $1.html [NC,L]

You can use this code to remove .htaccess file extension.
