    How can Apache ignore file extensions?


    How can server ignore file extensions, eg, after enabling MultiViews option?

    Please explain if you can.

    Thank you

    Please try to find more appropriate forums for your non-PHP questions. This one is clearly about Apache.

    Content Negotiation - MultiViews
    The effect of MultiViews is as follows: if the server receives a request for /some/dir/foo, if /some/dir has MultiViews enabled, and /some/dir/foo does not exist, then the server reads the directory looking for files named foo.*, and effectively fakes up a type map which names all those files, assigning them the same media types and content-encodings it would have if the client had asked for one of them by name. It then chooses the best match to the client's requirements.
