Getting rid of the index.php in the URL

Postby ale » Tue Nov 27, 2007 5:03 am


I've been testing this very experimental bunch of httpd.conf lines that could also go in an htaccess file:

Code: Select all

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond $1 !^(index\.php|styles|templates|images|robots\.txt)
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php/$1 [L]

Only part of what will be involved but I hope that helps if anyone wants to start the process, and then say, do a search and replace to eliminate the references to index.php. Would that work?

Hi ale,

Have a look in this forum for posts relating to mod_rewrite; there are a few people trying to accomplish the same thing (e.g. removing index.php from the URLs) and I believe there was a working set of rewrite rules.
