Wordpress index.php URL

Hi, i have just installed a new copy of wordpress on my site, however i have noticed that all of my urls have 'index.php' - such as

http://mywebsite.com/index.php/about-us/
http://mywebsite.com/index.php/contact-us/
http://mywebsite.com/index.php/news/

etc...

Does anyone know how to stop this? Thanks in advance...

Check the general settings in the Admin section.

Also check the theme that you are using if it has "home page" section.

Can you have a look at the control panel (Left side) under permalink setting and change it to "Default"

Can you tell me what was it set on before you changed it to default?  Was it "Custom Structure" with "/index.php/%postname%/"

Was Wordpress installed in a folder called "index.php"  if so you might have to change the folder name

Thanks

This is a good post that might help.  It look to be a hosting problem,

http://derekmolloy.ie/remove-index-php-from-your-wordpress-url/

Remove index.php from your WordPress URL

You will notice in this site which runs using WordPress that there is no index.php in the URL when you are directly addressing a page/post or when you are linking to other pages/posts.

There are two step 1's, depending whether you/your web provider is using Apache or Zeus scripting.


or this one


http://www.niallflynn.com/seo-news/register-365-wordpress-permalinks/

I ran into an issue today, while optimising a WordPress site hosted on Register 365 Servers, which initially looked to be Apache, but on closer inspection was Zeus. Not to worry I thought, WordPress will sort all this out, it’s an Apache type web server, I am sure the .htaccess will work. Well it did not and after a long time searching and looking around I found this work around.

No .htaccess instead rewrite.script, the code for the rewite.script is below and you can also download a zipped copy of the file here;


Thanks
