I call my site this way locally:


In .htaccess I have:

RewriteEngine on

RewriteRule !^((css|js|images)/.*)$ index.php%{REQUEST_URI} [L, NE]

I try to rewrite that into:


Any idea what's wrong there?


First thing I can see is that the path should be mysite/index.php

Probably also have to remove the \mysite\ from your regex because as it is now your REQUEST_URI is going to include mysite\xxxxx

You should probably use a rewrite condition to skip css,images, etc and then rewrite like this

RewriteRule (.*) /mysite/index.php/$1

If your server is throwing errors at you, you should look in the server log to see why. You can also enable logging of RewriteRule processing, see the docs.
