    Hi,

    I'm in the process of swapping over from static HTML to PHP. From what I understand to not lose all of the hard earned SEO I've done I need to rewrite a request for foo.htm to foo.php . After a while on Google (I'm obviously using the wrong search terms) I cannot for the life of me figger out how to do this.

    Can someone lend a dummy at hand?

    I want to rewrite foo.htm to foo.php so that someone who requests foo.htm is actually served foo.php.

    Cheers,

    Mark

    Hello Mark.
    I think you might be able to configure your server to parse .htm files as well as .php files. (Although I could be thinking of another scripting environment.)

    Hopefully somebody here can give a more authoritative answer.

    Hi Quadcity,

    Yes that's exactly what I need to do, I've managed to find the right combination of words to type into google and come up with the following:

    Add another apache type using:

    AddType application/x-httpd-php .html
    AddType application/x-httpd-php .htm

    in my .htaccess files. This means anything in a html file is parsed with php.

    Cheers,

    This is what I use in my .htaccess file:

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule ^(.+)\.html $1.php [QSA]

    It will probably work for you too. Keep in mind that it effects the directory you put it in + directories below this directory.

    If you use .htm make sure to change .html to .htm in the code above. :)
