Apache Configuration Question

Laravel 5.1 404 not found on apache server

I have currently hosted laravel 5.1 application to my 1and1.com server and I am facing a 404 not found errors to all my routes except for the root route i.e www.example.com/server/

The root route is working with get request but all the other routes are coming as 404 not found , everything is working good in localhost.

My application folder structure:


  • -example.com


    • -server


      • App

      • database

      • config

      • storage

      • .env

      • .htaccess

      • index.php

      • server.php





as you can see that I have removed the default laravel public folder and moved the contents to root.

My .htaccess

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
<IfModule mod_negotiation.c>
Options -MultiViews
</IfModule>

RewriteEngine On

# Redirect Trailing Slashes If Not A Folder...
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)/$ /$1 [L,R=301]

# Handle Front Controller...
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^ index.php [L]

# Handle Authorization Header
RewriteCond %{HTTP:Authorization} .
RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization}] RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^ RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /$1 [L] </IfModule>


My Index.php

<?php

/**
* Laravel - A PHP Framework For Web Artisans
*
* @package Laravel
* @author Taylor Otwell <taylorotwell@gmail.com>
*/

/*

|
*/

require __DIR__.'/bootstrap/autoload.php';

/*

|
*/

$app = require_once __DIR__.'/bootstrap/app.php';

/*

|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
|
| Once we have the application, we can handle the incoming request
| through the kernel, and send the associated response back to

|
*/

$kernel = $app->make(Illuminate\Contracts\Http\Kernel::class);

$response = $kernel->handle(
$request = Illuminate\Http\Request::capture()
);

$response->send();

$kernel->terminate($request, $response);


Server.php



/**
* Laravel - A PHP Framework For Web Artisans
*
* @package Laravel
* @author Taylor Otwell <taylorotwell@gmail.com>
*/
$uri = urldecode(
parse_url($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], PHP_URL_PATH)
);

// This file allows us to emulate Apache's "mod_rewrite" functionality from the
// built-in PHP web server. This provides a convenient way to test a Laravel
// application without having installed a "real" web server software here.
if ($uri !== '/' && file_exists(__DIR__.''.$uri)) {
return false;
}

require_once __DIR__.'index.php';


Routes.php

Route::get('/', function(){
echo'test';exit();
});//test

Route::get('/s', function(){
echo'testss';exit();
});//test


now if you see that the first route is working fine, but when I do www.example.com/server/s this gives 404 not found.

Answer

Whenever you host your laravel application on a shared server, you need to separate the public folder.

All the contents of public folder should go to public_html folder of the server, while all the other folders need to go on root folder..

So, to get you going, first make a directory called laravel-app in your server root. Inside this folder, upload all the folders and files but do not upload the public folder.

Once all the files are uploaded, upload the contents of public folder to public_html folder.

Now, you need to tell laravel that you have changed the default structure of the folders. In order to do that, open index.php file which is located inside public_html folder.

Replace this line:

require __DIR__.'/bootstrap/autoload.php';

$app = require_once __DIR__.'/bootstrap/app.php';

with this line:

require __DIR__.'/../laravel-app/bootstrap/autoload.php';

$app = require_once __DIR__.'/../laravel-app/bootstrap/app.php';

Now, re-upload the index.php file, and you should get the desired output.

Hope this helps you out. Happy Coding. Cheers.
