Does it have to be About.php, or is about also good? The latter case would just require you to enable "pretty permalinks", for which you don't need a plugin. I'm not sure, but I don't think the Redirection plugin will do what you want here: you want the URL to stay the same, and I think the plugin forwards you to another page. Is it OK if request to /About.php are redirected to /about? This way old links still work, and new ones use the built-in WordPress structure. – Jan Fabry Dec 7 '10 at 10:15
My problem is only that I just want to redirect` lifecellskin.us/Dev/?page_id=5 ` to target url 'URL:lifecellskin.us/Dev/About.php`.I don't want the /about or /about.php.I exactly need /About.php.Because SEO is done for this website – shalu Dec 8 '10 at 4:56

Are both ?page_id=5 and About.php same page? If yes:

  1. First go to Settings > Permalinks > Permalink Settings and change the Common settings to anything other than the default.
  2. Once configure use this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/php-to-pages/ or any other that's similar.

Make sure the Page slug is edited according to your liking. You can edit the page slug individually from Pages > Pages.

For reference: @shalu asked a follow-up question to know how to allow upper-case letters in slugs. – Jan Fabry Dec 8 '10 at 8:05
Forgot about slug and lowercase. +1 at Jan Fabry solution there. – zeo Dec 8 '10 at 8:08
