.htaccess rewrite query

I currently use the following as standard on all the sites I develop:

# Replace mydomain/index.php with /
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^[^/]*/index\.php [NC]
RewriteRule . / [R=301,L]

# Force Trailing Slash For Folders
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/[^.]+[^/]$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://%{HTTP_HOST}/$1/ [R=301,L]

# Remove all instances of index.php leaving just the preceding /
# RewriteRule (.*)index\.php(.*) $1$2 [R,L]

The problem is the last one not only replaces index.php with a / it also replaces stimgs such as index.php?pageId=25

How can I get index.php replaced with a / only if there is not a string after it?

Hope this makes sense.

Thanks,

Luv2.

#only if query string is empty
RewriteCond ${QUERY_STRING} ^$
RewriteRule (.*)index\.php$ $1 [R,L]

Glad to see you are on the case revenpl.

I have tried this as you suggested, but for example:

http://www.doublespark.co.uk/website-design/index.php

does not get re-written as :

http://www.doublespark.co.uk/website-design/

Can you have another look?

Thanks,

Luv2.

And where it's redirected? To http://www.doublespark.co.uk/ ? If so, then the first rule fired first
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^[^/]*/index\.php [NC] # match for website-design/index.php
RewriteRule . / [R=301,L]

IMHO since the last one is about to remove any trailing index.php, You should disable the first rule.

Sorry ravenpl, I think I am not being clear and that I am confusing you.

What I want is any url that ends with /index.php being we-witten just leaving the /

So that

http://www.doublespark.co.uk/website-design/index.php

would become:

http://www.doublespark.co.uk/website-design/

and

http://www.doublespark.co.uk/index.php

would become:

http://www.doublespark.co.uk/

But

http://www.doublespark.co.uk//index.php?1234

would be not be re-written

Sorry for not explaining myself very well in the first place.

I guess this explains what I need but in one line:

#Remove all instances of index.php leaving just the preceding / but only if query string is empty

OK, I would go this way, I don't know why You have the first rule using THE_REQUEST

# Force Trailing Slash For Folders access
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} ![^/]$
RewriteRule (.*) $1/ [R,L]
#bit isn't it better to load mod_dir? http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/mod/mod_dir.html#directoryslash

#remove index.php if no query string after that
RewriteCond ${QUERY_STRING} ^$
RewriteRule (.*)index\.php$ $1 [R,L]

The above second rule have obvious bug
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^$
RewriteRule (.*)index\.php$ $1 [R=301,L]

and it should work - hence does not for me, I wonder why?
