CodeIgniter removing index.php from url

There are three steps to remove index.php from URL

Step:-1 Open the folder “application/config” and open the file “config.php“. find and replace the below code in config.php file.

//find the below code 
$config['index_page'] = "index.php"
//replace with the below code 
$config['index_page'] = ""

Step:-2 Go to your CodeIgniter folder and create .htaccess

RewriteEngine On RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php/$1 [L]

Step:-3 In some case the default setting for uri_protocol does not work properly. To solve this problem just open the file “application/config/config.php“, then find and replace the below code

//find the below code 
$config['uri_protocol'] = "AUTO" 
//replace with the below code 
$config['uri_protocol'] = "REQUEST_URI"
