How to remove "index.php" in codeigniter's path


Question

How do I remove the "index.php" sticking out in every path in codeigniter somewhere in the center? I want clean non index.php-fied URLs?

If you are using Apache place a .htaccess file in your root web directory containing the following:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond $1 !^(index\.php|[Javascript / CSS / Image root Folder name(s)]|robots\.txt)
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php/$1 [L]

I had some big issues with removing the index.php. As a general rule the .htaccess below has been tested on several servers and generally works:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php/$1 [L]  

<Files "index.php">
AcceptPathInfo On
</Files>  

If you don't have any luck with that then the next step is to adjust your config file. Try some of the other URI protocols e.g.

| 'AUTO'            Default - auto detects
| 'PATH_INFO'       Uses the PATH_INFO
| 'QUERY_STRING'    Uses the QUERY_STRING
| 'REQUEST_URI'     Uses the REQUEST_URI
| 'ORIG_PATH_INFO'  Uses the ORIG_PATH_INFO

   $config['uri_protocol']  = 'ORIG_PATH_INFO';

If your still not having any luck try changing the rewrite rule to include your subfolder. This is often a problem if your using a temporary URL on a dev server etc:

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /subofolder1/subfolder2/index.php/$1 [L]  

Just play around with these options, one should work. Also, make sure your index file is set to:

$config['index_page'] = '';

Good luck!
