Removing index.php from URLs in CodeIgniter

.htaccess file in root directory

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ ./index.php?$1 [L,QSA]

In the application folder

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond $1 !^(index\.php|images|robots\.txt)
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php/$1 [L]
</IfModule>

In application/config/config.php

search for

$config['index_page']='index.php';

and replace it with

$config['index_page'] = '';

Now we will get URLs without index.php

I am writing this code based on CodeIgniter 2.2.1
