In this post, let's learn how to setup an .htaccess file for redirecting to Laravel’s public folder.

In Laravel the path for serving your web page is in the /public folder. By default after installing Laravel and navigating in a browser to the URL you will see a directory listing of all the Laravel files. Here’s an easy way using an .htaccess file to redirect requests of user to the Laravel /public folder mod_rewrite.

Create a .htaccess file in your root directory and add the following code.

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
# That was ONLY to protect you from 500 errors
# if your server did not have mod_rewrite enabled

RewriteEngine On
# RewriteBase /
# NOT needed unless you're using mod_alias to redirect

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/public
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ public/$1 [L]
# Direct all requests to /public folder

I hope it's helpful for you.
