Hi Krist,

It is requested by my client as he doesn't want client to guess the
scripting engine that being used. And how do I forbid the php extension
access while stil can map html to php extension ?

What you can do however is:

Hm... can you please give me an example ? I'm quite frustrated with this :)

Many Thanks...
