Home htaccess rewrite for simplified url structure causing infinite redirect
 I'm making a very small project, whereas normally I would use a PHP framework that handles this for me, I don't want the unneeded clutter of a framework. I have this structure: -> assets -> css/etc -> pages -> api.htm -> scramble.htm -> unscramble.htm -> structure -> header.htm -> footer.htm -> index.php  All of these files are in a directory themselves, example.com/example/scrambling/ So, to access my files, normally I would have to access example.com/example/scrambing/pages/api.htm for example - but I want all of the page loading to be handled through index.php. My goal is to access the file above by simply going to example.com/example/scrambling/api I found some questions on how to achieve this with .htaccess, but none of them are working for me. They always result in an infinite loop, and getting redirected to /example/scrambling/pages/index/pages/index/pages/index/pages/... - I'm not really sure how to go about solving this issue. My current .htaccess file is this: RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteRule ^([A-Za-z0-9-]+)/?$index.php?f=$1  and I try to access the page name by echo $_REQUEST['f']; How can I make the .htaccess file not infinitely redirect me?

RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR] RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d RewriteRule .* - [L] RewriteRule ^([^/]+)$ index.php?f=\$1 [L,QSA]
