PHP Question

After modifying my .htaccess file to hide the .php extension from the URL, some directory items are unable to be found

Recently, I got some help modifying my .htaccess file to hide the .php extension in the url. After I got it working, a few bugs occurred with my site. For whatever reason, any php page in a sub directory returns a 404 error. For example:


mywebsite.com/test/test.php (this 404's)


but


mywebsite.com/test/test.html (this works just fine)


Since this only started occurring after my .htaccess file was modified, I am assuming the problem lies there. The file contains as follows:

RewriteEngine On

# Unless directory, remove trailing slash
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^([^/]+)/$ http://www.mywebsite.com/$1 [R=301,L]

# Redirect external .php requests to extensionless url
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} !POST
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} /.+?\.php [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.+?)\.php$ /$1 [R=301,L,NE]

# Resolve .php file for extensionless php urls
RewriteRule ^([^/.]+)$ $1.php [L]

ErrorDocument 404 /404.php

DirectoryIndex index.php


If there is any more information I can provide to help solve this, please let me know!

Thank you for all the help.

Answer

Try these rules in your root .htaccess:

ErrorDocument 404 /404.php    
DirectoryIndex index.php
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /

# Unless directory, remove trailing slash
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^([^/]+)/$ /$1 [R=301,L,NE]

# Redirect external .php requests to extensionless url
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} !POST
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} /.+?\.php [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.+?)\.php$ /$1 [R=301,L,NE]

# Resolve .php file for extensionless php urls
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/$1\.php -f [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.+?)/?$ $1.php [L]
