Is there a way to remove .php or .html, or .whatever extentions from the url bar when users visit pages on mysite? For example, if a user goes to www.mysite.com/edituser.php it shows the url as:

I don't want the .php to be visible to the users. How would I remove extensions from web urls?

Right now for a user to go directly to the edituser page they have to type in the entire url:

I know I can set up a virtual directory or entry for edituser that will redirect to edituser.php, but the url bar will still show www.mysite.com/edituser.php

I know mod_rewrite will most likely be involved, but the examples I've read haven't helped.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

If don't want any filenames, you can create a folder for each page and put an index.php in that folder. Or if you don't want the .php extenstion you can change you AddType directive for application/x-httpd-php.
