I've migrated my store from version 1.9 to 2.1.1 using a tool.

However all the old products are appending html.html at the end of the URL. I basically truncate the url_rewrite table and saved all the categories. That created new URLs.

It looked good for few days, but now slowly I am noticing that some URLs are changing again to html.html.

This is not good for any business. It looks like when I create a new category or edit an existing category, all the products are being affected.

The new products entered into 2.1.1 are not affected by this bug — only the old ones I migrated from 1.9.

The thing is your product's url_key and url_path have .html in them.

Here is what I did to get rid of that problem.

Warning: If your links have been having .html.html for some time they've probably already got indexed by google. To avoid loosing any traffic make sure you redirect .html.html to .html with your web server after you apply my fix.

Login to your DB and issue the following commands:

UPDATE catalog_product_entity_varchar
 SET value=replace(value,'.html','') WHERE attribute_id IN
  (SELECT attribute_id FROM eav_attribute
    WHERE attribute_code in ('url_key','url_path') AND entity_type_id =
     (SELECT entity_type_id FROM eav_entity_type WHERE 

DELETE FROM url_rewrite WHERE target_path LIKE "%.html.html%";

UPDATE IGNORE url_rewrite SET request_path = REPLACE(request_path, '.html.html', '.html');

Then reindex the database:

php bin/magento indexer:reindex

And the issue should be fixed.
