        allow from all
sudo a2enmod rewrite
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Change $config[‘index_page’] = “index.php” to $config[‘index_page’] = “” in config.php

RewriteCond $1 !^(index\.php|resources|robots\.txt)
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php/$1 [L,QSA]
