SocialEngine 4: Remove Index.php From Address Bar

Andrew - SocialEngine

Have you recently upgraded or made changes to your SocialEngine Site and now find issues with the address of your site such as:

Your site use to point to

Missing out the index.php reference?

To fix this problem you will need to open up your .htaccess file found in the root of your SocialEngine Install and edit it with the following code:


# Get rid of index.php
  RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} /index\.php
  RewriteRule (.*) index.php?rewrite=2 [L,QSA]

  # Rewrite all directory-looking urls
  RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} /$
  RewriteRule (.*) index.php?rewrite=1 [L,QSA]

Add this code to the top of the file save and re-upload.

This would have fixed your issue for you.
