I use CQ5 as application server and apache as front end. My CQ5 url is ( http://example.com:6703/testclient/en.html). I have configured apache Mod_PROXY to access CQ5 url without 6703 port. When i use apache url http://example.com/testclient , it succssfully redirect to http://example.com:6703/testclient/en.html (please see below proxy setting) Now my concern is i want to hide/remove .html from browser. Please let me know if there is any way using Redirect rule or Proxy rule we can hide url extension.

Apache configuration

ProxyPass / http://example.com:6703/ keepalive=on
ProxyPassReverse / http://example.com:6703/

Thank you,

To hide the extension you must first alter the link that the user clicks on the page so that the browser makes a request for a URL without an extension.

Once that has been done, it is then a case of implementing a proxying and/or rewriting operation so that the incoming request makes the server internally fetch the right content and send it out to the browser.

Everything begins with the click.
