I am trying to remove the annoying "index.php" from my URL. WP is installed at /www/html/wordpress. I already tried removing index.php from permalink and changing .htaccess as suggested here, but none worked.

I think I should somehow tell the thing where wordpress is installed. Any ideas how I can fix this?

  • In "settings", "General Settings", which site url is set? – BenB Jun 25 '17 at 15:33

    you've verified that mod_rewrite is installed and working? – Milo Jun 25 '17 at 15:42
  • The site url is www.myurl.com (of course with /index.php/%postname% for permalink). And mod_rewrite is installed and working. I was able to fix this on my other server, where WP is installed at root, but not on this one. No idea why! – geek2000 Jun 25 '17 at 16:31
