How to remove public/index.php/ from url in Codeigniter 4

Using htaccess

It is very easy to remove remove public/index.php/ from url in Codeigniter 4.

You need to create 2 .htaccess files.

The first one in root path "/.htaccess" of your project the second one in the public folder "public/.htaccess"

and here is the first one "/.htaccess"

# this is my version (Nassim) of the htaccess file , I use this one in the root directory "/"

# of the project and a second .htaccess in the public directory

DirectoryIndex /public/index.php

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond $1 !^(index\.php|images|assets|css|js|robots\.txt|favicon\.ico)
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ ./public/index.php/$1 [L,QSA]
and the second one (comes with CI installation): "public/.htaccess"

# I recommend you remove `IfModule`. Because if you need mod_rewrite,
# you don't need `IfModule`. If you don't need it, you don't need this file
# at all.
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond $1 !^(index\.php|images|assets|doc|data|robots\.txt)
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php/$1 [L]
