    Hi HowToForge

    I have set a Debian minimal 6 LAMP server up, and i have enabled mod_rewrite, but when i make a .htaccess file and write index.html i get a Error 404, but i can access the index.php without typeing the php extension, like http://domain/index

    my .htaccess

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule (.*)\.html $1.php
    i hope some of you can help me with my problem

    Google say's.....

    Hi Helstedxd

    I did a quick google on the problem and it spat this out :-

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule index\.html index.php [NC,R]
    NC means it is not case sensitive: index=INDEX=InDeX and R is the redirect.

    Give it a try and see if it does what you require.

    My source was here about a third of the way down the page.
