Running CI on Amazon Servers - Trouble with htaccess

#1

Ok, I can't believe that I am having trouble with this - but I can't get htaccess to work on amazons servers!

I have tried all of these and I can't access the page without the "index.php" file in the URL!
Code:
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
  RewriteEngine On
  RewriteBase /dev4/
  #RewriteBase /
  RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
  RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
  RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php/$1 [L]
</IfModule>

Code:
# Deny OR Allow Folder Indexes.
# Since we disable access to PHP files you
# can leave this on without worries.
# OR better yet, create a .htaccess file in
# the dir you want to allow browsing and
# set it to +Indexes
Options -Indexes

Options +FollowSymLinks

# Set the default file for indexes
DirectoryIndex index.php

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    # mod_rewrite rules
    RewriteEngine on
    
    # The RewriteBase of the system (if you are using this sytem in a sub-folder).
    #RewriteBase /
    #RewriteBase /dev4
    
    # If the file is NOT the index.php file
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !index.php
    # Hide all PHP files so none can be accessed by HTTP
    RewriteRule (.*)\.php$ index.php/$1
    
    # If the file/dir is NOT real go to index
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php/$1 [QSA,L]
    
</IfModule>

# If Mod_ewrite is NOT installed go to index.php
<IfModule !mod_rewrite.c>
    ErrorDocument 404 index.php
</IfModule>

The address is something like http://sub.site.com/dev4/
Has anyone ever used the Amazon servers before and knows some trick I don't?


accessing http://sub.site.com/dev4/welcome/ gives me an apache not found error, and accessing http://sub.site.com/dev4/index.php/welcome/ gives me a CI 404 error.

I have removed the $config['index_page'] = ""; as well.

Try this setup, it may help. http://ellislab.com/forums/viewthread/96347/

I'm horrible with htaccess, but then again, I use Nginx for my own servers. But Amazon's servers are no different than any other VPS. You have total control over the OS and all the server software. You can even run Windows and Solaris if you want.

Which AMI are you using? Keep in mind not all the images are setup for a production ready hosting environment out of the box. You might have to do some installation / configuration or your web server.

Nope, none of that worked either.

Also, I don't know much about the server - just that it is on AWS and that other the rewrites work with the "index.php" part in the url.

Code:
Apache/2.2.3 (CentOS) Server

EDIT:


Duh! it appears that the server admins thought they setup mod_rewrite! I see the module is loaded by Apache and .htaccess files are allowed - but no rules work! I guess we're missing something!

Thanks anyway!

Hey... I've been working on EC2 a great deal recently.
I've tended not to use any of the 'pre-built' AMI's out there which claim to be LAMP setups for just these reasons. Instead, try the basic Ubuntu server installs, then build the AMI you want.

Login to the server. Install Apache2, php5, all the apache modules you want, then bundle that distro up as your own AMI. Then you're good to deploy that exact setup to a new instance as soon as you want to scale.

Hi Elliott,
I am interested in putting CI on EC2. I saw your post. Is that still your general sentiment?
