I inherited a Codeigniter based PHP application. I'm trying to setup my development workstation to mimic the production system for some development work. An example url would be
http://example.production/start/PAF/paf the only way I can get it to work on my dev site is
http://example.local/start.php/PAF/paf. The codeigniter application/config.php uses start as the index_page instead of index.php. On the production system there are no rewrite rules in the httpd.conf or .htaccess. How is it possible that the ".php" is being removed without rewrites? Is there another place I should be looking for the rules?
