Problem with codeigniter routing

I have this website: The homepage is working fine. But no one of the other pages works :(

My config.php: $config[‘base_url’] = “”; $config[‘index_page’] = ‘’; $config[‘uri_protocol’] = ‘AUTO’;

My routes.php: $route[‘default_controller’] = “home”; $route[‘admin’] = “admin/login”; $route[‘apple’] = “home/apple”; $route[‘xiaomi’] = “home/xiaomi”; $route[‘samsung’] = “home/samsung”;

My .htaccess: RewriteEngine On RewriteBase / RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteCond $1 !^(index.php|assets|upload|robots.txt|..css) RewriteRule ^(.)$ index.php?/$1 [L]

Rewrite mod is enabled on VPS.

It was working fine in other hosting, but not on DO. When I open the website home, it’s ok. But when trying to open other pages (like “apple”, “samsung”), I got 404 error.

What can I do?

Hi there @rickfontoura,

I believe that you need to enable AllowOverride in order for your .htaccess to take effect.

To do that you need to add the following in your Vhost:

        <Directory /var/www/>
                Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
                AllowOverride All
                Require all granted

Note that you need to update the /var/www/ part to match your document root.

Then run a config test and restart Apache.

After that the rules that you have in your .htaccess file would take effect.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
