workspaces / htaccess / page not found

Okay I have copied the .htaccess file from the teacher's notes as described, used '$app = new \Slim\App();' to instantiate an object. Appended /hello/richard to the address line upon previewing the code and yet... still I continue to see the Page Not Found message.

The problem might be because Slim has been updated after the course was made. Try check out the Slim Framework website for more information :-)

https://www.slimframework.com/

<?php
use \Psr\Http\Message\ServerRequestInterface as Request;
use \Psr\Http\Message\ResponseInterface as Response;

require 'vendor/autoload.php';

$app = new \Slim\App;
$app->get('/hello/{name}', function (Request $request, Response $response) {
    $name = $request->getAttribute('name');
    $response->getBody()->write("Hello, $name");

    return $response;
});
$app->run();

Thanks, thats it. I overwrote my code with yours above and it works well. I do notice that also it says {name} as opposed to :name in the get method of the app object so that makes a big difference too.

You are going to use the Slim Frameworks website a lot through this course since there's been some changes to Slim since this course was published :-)

Correct. And with that in mind I have decided that the best course of action is to uninstall and install v2.6 instead through composer for the purpose of completing the course.

That's an option if you know you wont be using Slim after you finish the course - otherwise I would recommend taking the extra time to learn the updated version on your way through the course since you would have to learn it afterwards anyway :-)

Happy Coding! :-D
