URLs only work when '/index.php/' is used

Posted 3 years ago by Garbare

I have just launched a Laravel 5 project on a live server and all is going well except for one thing.

I need to write /index.php/ in the url to access any page other than the home page.

For example

sitename/                   -- this works fine

sitename/index.php          -- this also works fine

sitename/about              -- This causes a server 404

sitename/index.php/about        -- this works fine

I suspect this is an issue with the .htaccess file but I'm a little out of my comfort zone in this area.

Here is the .htacccess I'm using.

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

    RewriteEngine On

    # Redirect Trailing Slashes If Not A Folder...
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule ^(.*)/$ /$1 [L,R=301]

    # Handle Front Controller...
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteRule ^ index.php [L]

This is the .htaccess that came with the install. I haven't changed anything. (Any changes have been reverted.)

Does anyone have any insight into this?
