HTACCESS file - El Forum - 07-31-2009

[eluser]gandalf12[/eluser]
Hi ya

I have loaded a sample application on my website http://www.greenwitch.xtreemhost.com/codeigniter

problem is I think my .htaccess file is incorrect, here is what it looks like:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond $1 !^(index\.php|images|captcha|css|js|robots\.txt)
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php/$1 [L]

also, does the chmod code matter?? I think I have chmod'd 775 to all files!!

Thanks for any assistance

Grant

try
Code:
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond $1 !^(index\.php|images|captcha|css|js|robots\.txt)
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ ./index.php/$1 [L]

Notice the rewrite condition is reltive to the current directory instead of the web root (which is important as you have it in a folder called codeigniter in the root)

i think personally 655 is more secure depending on the host..

Like he said (also, there is no point to chmod all the files to 775).

If PHP is running under the same user and group (which is a bad idea for shared hosting) for every web account and they don't use PHP open_basedir or similar OS level protection, it doesn't really matter.
