Remove index.php from the URL

I have upgraded OwnCloud from version 9.0 for 9.1, but now I have "index.php" appearing on the URL. All files shared before the upgrade have URL like "" and now they are "Not found". If I add the "index.php" on the URL, like "" I can reach the file normally.

I have checked the .htaccess and confip.php files and "RewriteBase" rules looks like OK


  • RewriteBase /


  • 'htaccess.RewriteBase' => '/',


have a look at the FAQ here:

giving some pointers. A request to document this within the oC docs is open since some time here:

Contributions to that are welcome.

Hi RealRancor!

overwrite.cli.url is set properly... my OwnCloud is accessed by
and 'htaccess.RewriteBase' => '/',

I already ran sudo -u apache php occ maintenance:update:htaccess with success

Then it should work and add the correct RewriteBase to your .htaccess file

Thanks... nothing is wrong with OwnCloud at all... my fault... I found the error on vhost conf file

Hi @altairm could you tell me what did you do?
I'm facing the same problem.

Just read the last reply here:

Feedback to the new documentation is also welcome:

Hi @cleristononline... I've found that I did a mistake on the owncloud vhost file conf.
Check the Directory directive of AllowOverride .... this was the cause of problem
Check below what I'm telling you and where I corrected my file

Options +FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride All

<IfModule mod_dav.c>
  Dav off

Thank you very much @altairm for sharing.
I followed the same way you've done. It's working now.
My server is a CentOS 7 with apache (default) and AllowOverride comes with none, I've changed to All and add the part about Dav off. NOW it's working.
Thanks again.

HI @cleristononline. I'm happy for help you with my problem :slight_smile:

AllowOverride All

is a general requirement that the .htaccess file shipped with ownCloud is working / used.

it didn’t work for me, i’m still get index.php on public share dokumen URL, example

This is the default behavior on a current standard installation. I don’t think it is very productive to restart this 3 year old thread about a no longer relevant ownCloud version.
