Remove index.php from URLs?

WordPress includes wp-config-sample.php file, so CodeIgniter could be bundled with .htaccess-sample file.

When I first started with CI, I had real difficulty getting rid of the index.php from the url's. However the solution that works for me is a simple five line .htaccess file and a simple config change. I use the same .htaccess on all my sites now. So although it is actually a simple thing, it is quite complicated for newbies and can cause issues.

However working out of the box as widely as possible is very important.

I cannot see any problem with the way CI ships now, with the index.php by default. Perhaps a chapter in the userguide dedicated to this issue would solve newbie problems that I also experienced.


.htaccess = Apache. Don't assume everyone uses Apache. If you are going to supply default/example .htaccess, then you should for all major webserver engines as well (NGINX, IIS, PHP built-in, etc).

Personally, I think this is better left up to the docs instead of skeleton files for every server situation.
