In this class I show you how to create a VirtualHost in WAMP ( Apache ) and point this host to the root (“public” folder) of our project in CodeIgniter 4 . (WAMP was the tool of choice because it is the tool I am using in class. Below are links that show how to create virtual hosts in the most popular tools;).
In addition to creating the host, I also show how to enable “rewrite_mod” in Apache, to enable the use of URL rewriting (Friendly URLs). That way, we can remove the “index.php” from the URL, for example, making it more “lean”.
Before creating the host + enabling rewrite our URL to access the “products” area was: localhost / ci4pp / index.php / products
Now it’s like this: ci4app.local / products
Much better, don’t you think ???
