Subject [users@httpd] URI file extensions / suffixes
Date Thu, 07 Feb 2008 01:08:55 GMT

Firstly I would like to apologise for sending what is probably
considered a remedial question, however I have some web admins that are
demanding resolution immediately, have looked around the web and as yet
have not found a resolution.

I'm running apache 1.3.23 in a Solaris 10 environment. The problem I am
having is enforcing the use of extensions / suffixes in a given URL
which is causing problems with search indexing carried out by a google

I need to know how to force apache to require the filename extension eg.
when the URL is in the format http://someaddress/foo I would rather a
page not found than the return of foo.html. At first I thought this
would be associated with mime.types however when I disable mime.types
and MimeMagic I still have not joy. Other than that the only resolution
I have found on the web seems to be associated with rewrites but surely
there is an easier way.

Thanks in advance for any clues on this one
