Remove index.php from URL using htaccess

Many PHP developers find it difficult to remove index.php from URL. The best way is to use  .htaccess file in your root directory.

mod_rewrite must be enable with php and this will work for the php version higher than 5.2.6

RewriteEngine On  RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php?/$1 [L]

PHP version less than 5.2.6 try this

RewriteEngine On  RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php/$1 [L]

Save the .htaccess file. We hope the above changes to the htaccess file can help you to remove the index.php from your URL. You can use the above method for any CMS like Joomla, Magento or WordPress.
