Hide .php dont work

Hello, I have a question, I am trying to hide .php with .htaccess in Centos 7 but it is not working. Would you help me?

My code .htaccess:

Options +MultiViews

Run Php without filename extension

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

Return 404 if original request is .php

RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} “^[^ ]* .?.php[? ].$” RewriteRule .* - [L,R=404]

It’d be far better to handle this using a router and simply point all requests to your index.php file for processing (which is what WordPress and other CMS’s do). Using a router of sorts would provide you with far more utility and allow for more options when it comes to processing requests.

If you’re stuck with .htaccess, either because you’re not able to use a router, or code your own, then you could try using:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule (.*) $1.php [L]


RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME}.php -f
RewriteRule (.*) $1.php [L]

Did you check the logs? Did you load mod_rewrite? Did you configure AllowOverride?
