How to change the PHP file extension using .htacess file on GoDaddy Linux Hosting?

I am using the following .htacess rules to modify the PHP file extensions to HTML:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME}\\.php -f
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ $1.html

I placed the .htacess file as well as two PHP files (page1.php and page2.php) in the root.

When I try to access the PHP files using the html extension instead (page1.html or page2.html) I get the 404 error message stating the page cannot be found.

Could you please guide me to the right direction?

It’s the same as creating a PHP type handler (for .php) but use .html instead.

AddType application/x-httpd-php .html



Thank you DK. I was able to achieve by using the following statement also:

RewriteRule ^(.*)\\.asp$ $1.php
