remove “index.php” from permalinks

I have been trying to find a solution. but I can’t..

my links are all

I really want to remove /index.php

I have searched and found some… saying I need to add these.. but it’s not working ..

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

# END WordPress

I am using 3.5.2 wp.

Please let me know if you know anything about it.


Go to your WP-ADMIN–>Settings–>Permalink and use the permalink structure change there, if it generate any .htaccess file copy the content and update your .htaccess file.

Or Check if your hosting mod_rewrite is enable by creating a file phpinfo.php with content,

<?php phpinfo();?>

Upload this file and browse via Browser. So you know which modules are enabled. You need mod_rewrite enable to remove index.php from URL.
