View Full Version : [ubuntu] apache automatically rewriting URLs?

March 29th, 2010, 05:50 AM
So I have a really weird problem. I enabled mod_rewrite using a2enmod, but now apache automatically rewrites pages (like it's inheriting). For example, any page with a .php extension can be accessed with or without the extension. For example, example.com/page.php = example.com/page = example.com/page/! There are NO .htaccess files on the server anywhere! I did a full sudo search. Is there something in the apache configuration that automatically does this. I've never seen it before. I need to write custom rewrites, and this is screwing everything up.

Please help!

The configuration that causes this doesn't need to be in a .htaccess file. It could be in any *.conf file in /etc/apache2/.

Also note .htaccess files are hidden and might not appear in your search results. ls -a will show hidden files.
