PHP Question

URL routing in PHP (MVC)

I am building a custom MVC project and I have a base folder

/mvc
that contains
.htaccess
and
routes.php
files and that is placed in
C:\xampp\htdocs
root folder. Here are my files:

C:\xampp\htdocs\mvc\.htaccess

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>

RewriteEngine on

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !.*\.png$ [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !.*\.jpg$ [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !.*\.css$ [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !.*\.gif$ [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !.*\.js$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^((?!routes\.php).+)$ /mvc/routes.php [L]

</IfModule>


C:\xampp\htdocs\mvc\routes.php

<?php
# Routing logic goes here...


Problem



I'd like to move
routes.php
into
mvc/app
folder, hence I changed this line in
.htaccess


RewriteRule ^((?!routes\.php).+)$ /mvc/routes.php [L]


to this line:

RewriteRule ^((?!routes\.php).+)$ /mvc/app/routes.php [L]


But that does not seem to work! I get a 500 error. What am I doing here? I'd like to redirect ALL requests (including any
.php
or other file requests, excluding images) to
mvc/app/routes.php
, which will handle the HTTP requests and direct them to the appropriate controllers.

Answer

Try with:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine on

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !\.(png|jpg|css|gif|js)$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^((?!mvc/app/routes\.php).+)$ /mvc/app/routes.php [L]
</IfModule>
