How to remove index.php from url in magento

How to remove index.php from url in magento

1) Login to admin section by using the URL

2) then go to “System >>  Configuration >>Web >> Search Engines Optimization”
Use Web Server Rewrites : YES

NB: In Latest Magento Versions (in my case magento 1.7.2)  .htaccess file is already there. You don’t need to do the following steps.  (Go to Cache management page (system cache management ) and refresh your cache and refresh to check the site).

3) Go to “System >>  Configuration >>Web >>Secure”

Use secure URL Frontend: YES

4)Then create the .htaccess file under your the magento installed folder.

If the magento installed under document root ( /home/username/public_html) then add follogig rules into .htaccess file

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
</IfModule>

and If the magento installed under /shop or directory then add the following rules into ” /home/username/public_html/shop/.htaccess ” file.

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /shop/
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /shop/index.php [L]
</IfModule>
