How do I remove index.php from my URL?

Permalink
I'm starting to play with concrete5, and when I click the contact button, the URL is:
http://www.MYSITE.com/concrete5/index.php/contact/...

How do I remove the index.php from the URL?

In Joomla, there is a box you check for SEO URLs. I didn't see something similar in concrete5. Am I missing something? Is there a way to make the cutesy/clean URLs when you make content?

Thanks

In the dashboard->sitewide settings->enable pretty url's.

You will get a code, add that to your .htaccess file and then it should work.

Thanks, I'll try that out.

I got to the point where I copied the code from concrete5 but the help doesn't really explain where to paste it in the text editor.

I tried just pasting it in to the bottom, but now things don't work. I'm unsure of the syntax. Any gurus out there?

Already have a .htaccess file?
Post your code and then it would be easier to place.

I've tried varying degrees of adding # etc, but I just don't understand this stuff.

I already have a Joomla installation with .htaccess.txt and htaccess files.

Thanks Maynar for taking the time to answer the questions I've had today in other threads too.

Appears to me like you are using Joomla. I don't know if this is a great mix.

If you don't use joomla remove all the other code in the .htaccess file.

If you are using Joomla, how is your structure and can't you put the joomla file in the joomla directory, same goes for concrete. concrete htaccess file in concrete directory?

I have a habbit of only looking at code, but anyway. Do your concrete and joomla installation share the same folder?

I hope your webserver is ordered like this:
-root
--joomla
--concrete

Am I right?

Well that makes it quite difficult. Place it in the "test" dir a new .htaccess file.
And place the code in there..
