I am running Ubuntu 14.04 x64.
I have enabled mod_rewrite on my droplet. This works (i.e. correctly redirects to testfile.php):
RewriteRule ^testfile2$ testfile.php
But this doesn’t (gives me a 404 error):
RewriteRule ^testfile$ testfile.php
So I essentially cannot redirect a URL to a file of the same name but with a PHP extension. The two examples are both working locally with MAMP. What could be causing this issue?
