I have these rewrite rules in my site configuration:
RewriteEngine on RewriteRule ^app.php - [L] RewriteRule ^(.*)$ app.php$0 [L]
The goal is that all requests should be appended to the front controller "app.php". The last line of the rules is causing my server to respond with "400: Bad Request" no matter what path I try, even an empty path. I have enabled the rewrite log and attempted two paths: "/" and "/login". This is what the log says:
(2) init rewrite engine with requested uri / (3) applying pattern '^app.php' to uri '/' (3) applying pattern '^(.*)$' to uri '/' (2) rewrite '/' -> 'app.php/' (2) local path result: app.php/ (2) init rewrite engine with requested uri /login (3) applying pattern '^app.php' to uri '/login' (3) applying pattern '^(.*)$' to uri '/login' (2) rewrite '/login' -> 'app.php/login' (2) local path result: app.php/login
According to the logs it should succeed. If I remove the last line of the rewrite rules and visit the URL "app.php/login" then it works as expected.
Does anybody have any idea why this isn't working?
Note: There are no errors in the error logs.
Note: The resulting paths ("app.php/", "app.php/login") work perfectly when the last rewrite rule is removed.
