    Rewrite Htaccess Link to this post

    I've been having issues getting mod_rewrite to work properly with silverstripe on my website.
    I have checked with my hosting service provider and they've told me that rewrite should work fine, I just need to update my htaccess file correctly.

    So can anyone help me with what requirements or modifications I need to make to my htaccess file to make it work?

    You'll need to provide some more detail on your web server setup on the host before we can provide any more information.
    If you're using Apache, you might want to check that "AllowOverride All" is set. If this has been disabled by the host, SilverStripe will not work with rewrites.

    Assuming the SS 2.4 installer is giving you a warning about not having rewrite support, have you tried to continue with the install anyway?

    Yeah, that's what I did. Installation worked, but now I am having some issues with the pages, and when seeking help I was told it related to my rewriting/htaccess.

    For example, I cannot dev build using myurl.com/dev/build/?flush=1
    I have to use myurl.com/index.php/...etc
    If I try the first, I get a generic 404 error, not even the 404 error page I designed in Silverstripe.
    I was told that both of these are an issue with my rewriting.

    I have the same problem with JustHost. They are using Apache. Here is the content of my htaccess.txt file

    # The line just below this section: 'Options +FollowSymLinks' may cause problems
    # with some server configurations. It is required for use of mod_rewrite, but may already

    ## Can be commented out if causes errors, see notes above.

    ## Mod_rewrite in use.

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteOptions Inherit

    ## Begin - Rewrite rules to block out some common exploits.
    # If you experience problems on your site block out the operations listed below
    # This attempts to block the most common type of exploit `attempts` to Joomla!
    #

    ## Begin - Custom redirects
    #
    # If you need to redirect some pages, or set a canonical non-www to
    # www redirect (or vice versa), place that code here. Ensure those
    # redirects use the correct RewriteRule syntax and the [R=301,L] flags.
    #
    ## End - Custom redirects

    ##
    # Uncomment following line if your webserver's URL

    # Update Your Joomla! Directory (just / for root).
    ##

    # RewriteBase /

    ## Begin - Joomla! core SEF Section.
    #
    RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization}]
    #
    # If the requested path and file is not /index.php and the request
    # has not already been internally rewritten to the index.php script
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/index\.php
    # and the request is for something within the component folder,
    # or for the site root, or for an extensionless URL, or the
    # requested URL ends with one of the listed extensions
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} /component/|(/[^.]*|\.(php|html?|feed|pdf|vcf|raw))$ [NC]
    # and the requested path and file doesn't directly match a physical file
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    # and the requested path and file doesn't directly match a physical folder
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    # internally rewrite the request to the index.php script
    RewriteRule .* index.php [L]
    #
    ## End - Joomla! core SEF Section.

    I dont want to have an index.php, on my URL. Any help will be appreciated.

    Re: Rewrite Htaccess Link to this post

    Hi

    is joomla installed IN the same dir as silverstripe?

    try adding this in .htacces

    RewriteBase \ ( if ss in public_html remove all this, or write name of dir its in)

    like
    in public_html
    RewriteBase \

    in sub dir called newsite
    RewriteBase \newsite

    let me know if this helps
