CI4 Stuff

Codeigniter 4 Stuff

A) Virtualmin and Codeigniter 4

  • In Virtualmin, extracted CI4 to the public_html folder.
  • Goto ‘Website Options’ and changed the ‘Website documents sub-directory’ to: public_html/public

This changes the Directory tag in Apache to: <Directory /home/ci4/public_html/public>. This makes sure that Apache uses the index.php as the front router file in the public folder.

  • Comment out the following, in the public_html/public/.htaccess file: Line 2: #Options All -Indexes (this is already set in the Apache config for the Virtual Server)
  • and change Options FollowSymLinks to Line 11: Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch (which provides symlink protection).

HTACCESS File in Public Folder.
