How can I mod rewrite all traffic to index.php but also to a backend directory?

Mike5050 Published in 2017-12-07 05:10:26Z

I have a .htaccess as follows:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^public
    RewriteRule ^(.*) index.php [L]

My directory is set up as follows:

root directory:
  server (code):

Requests go into html/index.php, and then the server gets initiated in the backend. Calling $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']; yields the following for http://localhost/

Request URL : /index.php

This is correct, because I can then add on site/index.php. However, I want to also do http://localhost/test and have it changed to /site/test.php. The following is what happens when calling $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']; for http://localhost/test

Request URL : /testindex.php

What should happen is Request URL : /test so then I can add on the site/test.php myself.

Thank you!

Files / Directories cannot be accessed outside the document_root. The simple solution is to update the index.php as a router. Then the router needs to include the corresponding files, if it exists. Otherwise you need to handle the file not exists situation, such as response 404 error.

You may need to update this .htaccess to redirect all the request to index.php:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^public

    # Redirect Trailing Slashes If Not A Folder...
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} (.+)/$
    RewriteRule ^ %1 [L,R=301]

    RewriteRule ^$ index.php [L]
    RewriteRule ^(.*) index.php?route=$1 [QSA,L]


Then, you can parse the route in index.php:

    if (isset($_GET['route'])) {
        $route = $_GET['route'];
        if (file_exists(__DIR__.'/../site/' . $route)) {
            include __DIR__.'/../site/' . $route;
You need to login account before you can post.
