htaccess - ensuring all requests go through public_html/index.php


On my localhost , I have all of my files in a public_html folder to match the directory struture on the server (I won't go into the reasons for that!). So I have


In public_html I have an .htaccess file which redirects everything through index.php:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . index.php

What I need to do is ensure that all requests eg http://localhost/myproject/somename.php get processed (through index.php) correctly rather than having to write http://localhost/myproject/public_html/somename.php all the time.

I've done a lot of searching on the topic but can't find a solution - not great at .htaccess!

Many thanks

Grab a copy of the Laravel framework and follow their pattern for .htaccess.  This is exactly how it works!

Try adding .htaccess file in c:/wamp/www/myproject:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    <IfModule mod_negotiation.c>
        Options -MultiViews

    RewriteEngine On

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