Apache2 Configuration

Enable Apache mod_rewrite plugin.

sudo a2enmod rewrite

The AllowOverride option for directories in the apache2.conf file must be All.

vim /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

Change this option from the default None to All.

<Directory /var/www/>
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride All
    Require all granted

Create a hosts file.

cd /etc/apache2/sites-available
cp 00-default.conf example.local.conf
vim example.local.conf

In your Apache host file, the DocumentRoot configuration must be set to the yourproject/public/ folder. It is recommended to set DirectoryIndex to index.php. ServerName is set to example.local in this example.

<VirtualHost *:80>

    SetEnv "APP_ENV" "local"
    ServerName example.local
    ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
    DocumentRoot /var/www/olobase-skeleton-php/public/
    DirectoryIndex index.php

    ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
    CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined


Save your vhost file and restart the apache server.

a2ensite example.local.conf
sudo service apache2 restart


Configuration requires the .htaccess file as follows. This file is located in the /public folder.

# Disable directory indexing
# Options -Indexes
# Options +FollowSymLinks
# Options -MultiViews

php_value post_max_size 10M
php_value upload_max_filesize 10M

RewriteEngine On
# Redirect www to non-www
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.(.*)$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%1/$1 [R=301,L]

# The following rule allows authentication to work with fast-cgi
RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization}]
# The following rule tells Apache that if the requested filename
# exists, simply serve it.
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -s [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -l [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
RewriteRule ^.*$ - [NC,L]

# The following rewrites all other queries to index.php. The
# condition ensures that if you are using Apache aliases to do
# mass virtual hosting, the base path will be prepended to
# allow proper resolution of the index.php file; it will work
# in non-aliased environments as well, providing a safe, one-size
# fits all solution.

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/api/
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ %{ENV:BASE}index.html [NC,L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI}::$1 ^(/.+)(.+)::\2$
RewriteRule ^(.*) - [E=BASE:%1]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ %{ENV:BASE}index.php [NC,L]
