Remove index.php from codeigniter

Hello all
Today I am going to show you, how to remove the index.php part from your codeigniter URL. There are many ways to do it, but based on my previous experience, I got it is the best way to do so. To do so, create a .htaccess file in your directory and copy the following code in your created file.


RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule .* index.php/$0 [PT,L]


Now, save this file and run your codeigniter apps. Hopefully, it will work perfectly.

Thanks for reading.

Hey Guys.
How are you? Hope you are fine. Now, I am going to show how to recover a Fatal Error in codeigniter.

In codeigniter, sometime you will face some fatal error like the below-

Fatal error: Call to undefined function base_url()

You know, base_url() is function is based on url at codeigniter. That’s why, you have to mentioned the url in your controller or autoload.php file. I suggest to put url in your autoload file. Thats why you have to go to your codeigniter directory and open /system/application/config/autoload.php file. Now, find out the $autoload[‘helper’] = array(); line. It can be 54 no line.
