First some information about my server:

Apache2 Version: 2.4 Modules: php5 : disabled; rewrite : enabled; suexec : enabled; fcgid : enabled;

Php Version: 5.3.3

I am currently creating a website using CodeIgniter, i would like to rewrite my URL's to 'hide' the index.php from the browser

I already tried these 2 solutions here but it didn't work: http://takeitoffroad.blogspot.ch/2008/08/codeigniter-issues-with-htaccess-to.html

My .htaccess file currently looks like this:

Edit: I made this one work, if I put it in to my conf file of my vHost, but if i use it in .htaccess it doesn't do what it should... activated trace, log below:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php/$1 [L,QSA]
</IfModule>

If I check the last line (internal redirect), it is exactly the same line as if I would browse to /index.php/main/forgot directly, then it would work... I'd say it must have sth to do with FCGID

I would be glad for any possible solution. If you want more information, just post a comment and I'll add it

Thanks

Okay found a solution. i don't know exactly why, but adding a questionmark before the slash in index.php/$1 is working fine now... didn't work yesterday tough O_o

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On

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

Could anyone explain to my why it has to be there?
