I am starting to dabble in CodeIgniter 4. Completed a simple app. On local, I have the documentroot setup to be /public/ where as on the product hosting environment, I am unable to set the documentroot to be in /public/.

Instead it is in /root.

So the structure is like so:

/root
../admin
../app
../system
../public
../.htaccess
../index.php

I've moved the htaccess from the public folder to the root level.

# Disable directory browsing
Options All -Indexes

# ----------------------------------------------------------------------
# Rewrite engine
# ----------------------------------------------------------------------

# Turning on the rewrite engine is necessary for the following rules and features.
# FollowSymLinks must be enabled for this to work.
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    Options +FollowSymlinks
    RewriteEngine On

    # If you installed CodeIgniter in a subfolder, you will need to
    # change the following line to match the subfolder you need.
    # http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/mod/mod_rewrite.html#rewritebase
    RewriteBase /public

    # Redirect Trailing Slashes...
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteRule ^(.*)/$ /public/$1 [L,R=301]

    # Rewrite "www.example.com -> example.com"
    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.(.+)$ [NC]
    RewriteRule ^ http://%1%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]

    # Checks to see if the user is attempting to access a valid file,
    # such as an image or css document, if this isn't true it sends the
    # request to the front controller, index.php
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php/$1 [L]

    # Ensure Authorization header is passed along
    RewriteCond %{HTTP:Authorization} .
    RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization}]
</IfModule>

<IfModule !mod_rewrite.c>
    # If we don't have mod_rewrite installed, all 404's
    # can be sent to index.php, and everything works as normal.
    ErrorDocument 404 index.php
</IfModule>

# Disable server signature start
    ServerSignature Off
# Disable server signature end

and the index.php in root file:

<?php

// Valid PHP Version?
$minPHPVersion = '7.2';
if (phpversion() < $minPHPVersion)
{
    die("Your PHP version must be {$minPHPVersion} or higher to run CodeIgniter. Current version: " . phpversion());
}
unset($minPHPVersion);

// Path to the front controller (this file)
define('FCPATH', __DIR__ . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR);

// Location of the Paths config file.
// This is the line that might need to be changed, depending on your folder structure.

// ^^^ Change this if you move your application folder

 */

// Ensure the current directory is pointing to the front controller's directory
chdir(__DIR__);

// Load our paths config file
require $pathsPath;
$paths = new ConfigPaths();

// Location of the framework bootstrap file.
$app = require rtrim($paths->systemDirectory, '/ ') . '/bootstrap.php';

when going to http://sub.domain.com, i am getting the default controller and view rendering. However the CSS assets and JS assets that are linked: https://sub.domain.com/assets/css/style.bundle.css

are all going to a server error. the location of these files are actually in https://sub.domain.com/public/assets/css/style.bundle.css

but I am trying to avoid using /public/ in the url.

Any help or direction is appreciated.

Ideally, you should have all your folders at the same level as root. This is assuming that /root is the publically accessible directory.

In other words,

/admin
/app
/root
   .htaccess
   favicon.ico
   index.php
   robots.txt
   /assets
/system
/vendor
/writable

Note that there is no directory named "public". Actually it's used to be called public, but it has been renamed "root". There is no requirement that it be named public, only that it is the directory your domain name points to.

You should be able to use all files as-distributed except for setting some things in appconfig

copy paste below code in your web.config

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<configuration>
  <system.webServer>
    <rewrite>
      <rules>
        <rule name="Imported Rule 1" stopProcessing="true">
          <match url="^(.*)$" ignoreCase="false" />
          <conditions>
            <add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsFile" ignoreCase="false" negate="true" />
            <add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsDirectory" ignoreCase="false" negate="true" />
          </conditions>
          <action type="Rewrite" url="index.php/{R:1}" appendQueryString="true" />
        </rule>
      </rules>
    </rewrite>

Change folder name CodeIgniter-3.1.6 to ci

Set your base_url to

$config['base_url'] = 'http://localhost/ci/

Use this .htaccess

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

For htaccess I suggest:

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

And know that when you kill session CI will create a new 1 on your next Page load (in your case on the redirect) .. Session isn't just for user logins.

Don't forget at app/config/config.php to set

$config["index_page"] = '';

For your RewriteRule, add the NC and QSA flags. The QSA ensures that query strings are appended. Unless you are planning on CodeIgniter manage your css files, images, and robots.txt, leave out the penultimate line too.

Try this:

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

Also, check your uri_protocol in config.php. I've had some problems with WAMP not detecting it properly, and have had the most luck with setting it to PATH_INFO instead of AUTO.
