Removing index.php Using Laravel Code

Remove the index.php file name from the URL using the coding method. In this coding method, we add two methods in the route service to provide the file. We will add the map() method for the registration of our custom method. The second method we will create for redirecting if found index.php file.


namespace App\Providers;

use Illuminate\Cache\RateLimiting\Limit;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Support\Providers\RouteServiceProvider as ServiceProvider;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\RateLimiter;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;
use Str;

class RouteServiceProvider extends ServiceProvider
        * The path to the "home" route for your application.
        * This is used by Laravel authentication to redirect users after login.
        * @var string
    public const HOME = '/home';

        * Define your route model bindings, pattern filters, etc.
        * @return void
    public function boot()

        $this->routes(function () {


    protected function removeIndexPhpFromUrl()
        if (Str::contains(request()->getRequestUri(), '/index.php/')) {

            $url = str_replace('index.php/', '', request()->getRequestUri());

            if (strlen($url) > 0) {
                header("Location: $url", true, 301);

        * Configure the rate limiters for the application.
        * @return void
    protected function configureRateLimiting()
        RateLimiter::for('api', function (Request $request) {
            return Limit::perMinute(60);

Redirecting index.php In .htaccess

If you want to choose the .htaccess file. copy the below-given code and paste it into your application .htaccess file. Using the .htaccess file if there is found index file in the URL, it will redirect to the non-index file URL itself.

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
     RewriteEngine On

     # Redirect if index.php is in the URL
     RewriteRule ^index.php/(.+) /$1 [R=301,L]
