Here we will learn how to remove index.php from codeigniter url.

Where we didn’t remove the index.php from url and i have a category with following details

category name: techbuzz

So by default it’s url will create like  following

default url : www.myciportal.com/index.php/techbuzz

it will not run like this way

www.myciportal.com/techbuzz

For make this possible we have to work on config and htaccess both and steps are following to achieve this task
