I'm quite new to hosting a website, so bear with me.
I get that I can remove file extensions with the rewrite module. However, the ones that I've found requires me to also remove the extension in my HTML links. The problem is that it makes it impossible to test locally, unless I install apache on my own machine and copy the settings. But then I have to copy settings every time I want to change them, which isn't really something I want to do.
So is there any way to hide the file extensions without removing them in the actual links in HTML?
