I can't access the contact page. However, I can create the $app->get('/', function(){...}); and it work

here is my code

 * Created by PhpStorm.
 * User: minh
 * Date: 6/27/2015
 * Time: 10:16 AM
require 'vendor/autoload.php';


// use Monolog\Logger; // use Monolog\Handler\StreamHandler;

$app = new \Slim\Slim();

$app->get('/', function() { echo 'Hello, this is the home page.'; });

$app->get('/contact', function() { echo 'Feel free to contact us.'; });


I did create the .htaccess file

http://localhost:63342/test/testCase.php and I see the 'Hello, this is the home page'

but when I do

I think your rule is wrong. You have http://localhost:63342/test/testCase.php/contact

I think it should be http://localhost:63342/test/contact

I have the same problem with this build. You can see it live at http://vets rights.org. The nav is wrong if you start at http://vets rights.org/index.php

I have to write a a rule to actually return without index.php.

What do you mean when you said "your rule is wrong http://localhost:63342/test/testCase.php/contact"

I run the code in phpStorm and it give me the address like http://localhost:63342/test/testCase.php/contact

How do you make it like http://localhost:63342/test/contact

Can you explain with more details for me ? I can't get around with this

How do you run this http://vets rights.org. instead of this http://vets rights.org/index.php

my .htaccess look like this

RewriteEngine On

Some hosts may require you to use the RewriteBase directive.

If you need to use the RewriteBase directive, it should be the

absolute physical path to the directory that contains this htaccess file.

RewriteBase /

RewriteBase /~mcd4874/ RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteRule ^ index.php [QSA,L]

sorry, I was on my iPad and it auto corrected url to rule.

Try removing testCase.php from the contact page url and see if you get your contact page.

I have a simular problem.

The url is working, and I get "Hello, this is the home page". But is not working. If I instead use I get the contact message

here's someone else with the same problem. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/11569445/how-do-i-get-slim-framework-to-work-without-having-to-put-index-php-in-the-url

However, I don't quite understand how to fix it.

I had the same problem. I think the issue was in the main.twig template as far as what the link was. I will have to check later though.
