Clean URLs in CodeIgniter and Drupal for Debian based Dedicated Servers

[dfads params=’groups=-1′]

Initially, when my projects were in CodeIgniter I struggled to find out the solutions for Clean URLs. Now, I am working on Drupal CMS and the process for activating Clean URLs are similar as in CodeIgniter.

1. The first step is to add the following code in your .htaccess file.

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine on

# Rewrite URLs of the form 'x' to the form 'index.php?q=x'.

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ project_dir/index.php?q=$1 [L,QSA]
</IfModule>

2. Next, for Debian Linux OS edit /etc/apache2/sites-available/default file and add the following script.

<Directory "/var/www/project_dir/">
RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ project_dir/index.php?q=$1 [L,QSA]
</Directory>

3. If you are using CodeIgniter, the above two steps are done but for Drupal sites, visit the following link from your Drupal CMS Admin: http://your_site/admin/settings/clean-urls. Select the Enabled radio button & click on save.

Congratulations, You have activated Clean URLs for your websites.
