How to remove .php from the end of URLs with .htaccess

October 26, 2018

If you have files such as hello.php and you want users to be able to go to yoursite.com/hello, use the following code:

RewriteCond %{SCRIPT_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^([^.]+)$ $1.php [NC,L]

A request to http://yoursite/asdf will try and use the file /asdf.php.

Don't forget that you will probably need to enable the rewrite engine for these rules to work. Click the button below to find out how to do this.
