Need some htaccess help

Postby paimonsoror » Fri Jan 18, 2013 9:05 pm

Hey all, so i decided to really get down and organize my web server.

Code: Select all

Host: hostgator.com
my domain: normalexception.net
Webroot: /public_html



Before:
Had joomla installed directly in /public_html and things got a bit messy because i am also hosting another one of my pages on the same server.

Now:
My Joomla Install: /public_html/normalexception.net/prod_env/joomla/3_0/

So I have set up my htaccess to make sure that when users go to normalexception.net it is properly redirected to the joomla index.php. But I am having another problem that I could use help with. While users are able to get to my site, all of my links are long links that are showing the directory. I know there is a trick to hide the directory structure, but I do not know it :(. For example, if you go to my site, and click on the "Image Gallery" link, it will take you to:

http://www.normalexception.net/ normalexception.net/prod_env/joomla/3_0/index.php/image-gallery

If possible, I would like to hide the bold part. Here are my two htaccess files:

Webroot htaccess:

Code: Select all

Options +FollowSymLinks

RewriteEngine On

RewriteBase /

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(\.|/$)
RewriteRule (.*) http://normalexception.net/$1/ [R=301,L]

#Change http://normalexception.net to http://www.normalexception.net (Optional)
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^normalexception.net$
RewriteRule ^/?(.*)$ http://www.normalexception.net/$1 [R=301,L]

#### Rewrites http://www.normalexception.net/subdir to http://www.normalexception.net/
## Added this to allow existing files and directories to work
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^(/menalto|/redmine) [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
## Now the rewrite of subdir to rootdir
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/normalexception\.net/prod_env/joomla/3_0
RewriteRule ^$ normalexception\.net/prod_env/joomla/3_0/index.php [L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^(/menalto|/redmine) [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ normalexception\.net/prod_env/joomla/3_0/$1 [L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/normalexception\.net/prod_env/joomla/3_0
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^(/menalto|/redmine) [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ normalexception\.net/prod_env/joomla/3_0/$1 [L]


Joomla Root htaccess

I am trying to do very similar as you and receiving an "Invalid Token" error when logging in from the front end.

My webroot/.htaccess file looks nearly identical to yours (from: http://www.simplyraydeen.com/report-car ... bdirectory )

Code: Select all

 
Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine On

RewriteBase /

# Add trailing slash if path does not contain a period or end with a slash
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(\.|/$)
RewriteRule (.*) http://domain.com/$1/ [R=301,L]

#Change http://domain.com to http://www.domain.com (Optional)
#RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^domain.com$
#RewriteRule ^/?(.*)$ http://www.domain.com/$1 [R=301,L]
#### Rewrites http://www.domain.com/subdir to http://www.domain.com/
## Added this to allow existing files and directories to work
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
## Now the rewrite of subdir to rootdir
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/joomla
RewriteRule ^$ joomla/index.php [L]

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ joomla/$1 [L]
 

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/joomla
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ joomla/$1 [L]



My /joomla/.htaccess file looks nearly identical to yours with exception of the

Code: Select all

# Use PHP 5.3
AddType application/x-httpd-php53 .php

When I updated the configuration.php file
from:

Code: Select all

public $live_site = 'http://domain.com/joomla/';

to:

Code: Select all

public $live_site = 'http://domain.com/';


logging in from the front end causes "Invalid Token" error.

Any help would be appreciated.
