There are a few different ways to rewrite your URL from index.php to sample.php, but one of the most common methods is to use mod_rewrite in an Apache web server. Here are the steps to do this:

  1. Create a new file named .htaccess in the root directory of your website if one does not exist already.
  2. Add the following code to the .htaccess file:RewriteEngine On RewriteRule ^index.php$ sample.php [L] This code sets the RewriteEngine to on, which allows you to use mod_rewrite, and then sets up a rule that rewrites any URL that contains index.php to sample.php.
  3. Save the .htaccess file.


Now, when you visit a URL on your website that contains index.php, it will automatically be rewritten to sample.php. For example, if you visit http://www.example.com/index.php, it will be rewritten to http://www.example.com/sample.php.


It's important to note that mod_rewrite requires the Apache web server to be properly configured, and you may need to consult your web hosting provider or server administrator to ensure that it is set up correctly. Additionally, if you have existing rules in your .htaccess file, you may need to modify the code to work with those rules.

To rewrite your URL from index.php to sample.php, you can use the mod_rewrite module in the Apache web server. Here's how you can do it:

  1. Create a .htaccess file in the root directory of your website if one does not already exist.
  2. Open the .htaccess file and add the following lines of code:
1
2
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^index.php$ sample.php [L]


  1. Save the .htaccess file.


Now, when you access a URL on your website that contains index.php, it will be rewritten to sample.php. For example, if you visit http://www.example.com/index.php, it will be automatically redirected to http://www.example.com/sample.php.


Keep in mind that your server must have the mod_rewrite module enabled and properly configured. If you're not sure about this, you might need to contact your web hosting provider or server administrator for assistance.


Also, if you already have existing rules in your .htaccess file, be cautious when adding the code above. You might need to modify it accordingly to work alongside your existing rules.

Here's another way to rewrite your URL from index.php to sample.php using the %{REQUEST_URI} variable in the .htaccess file:Create a .htaccess file in the root directory of your website if it doesn't already exist.Open the .htaccess file and add the following lines of code:


RewriteEngine On RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/index.php$ [NC] RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /sample.php [L]


Save the .htaccess file.Now, when you visit a URL on your website that contains index.php, it will be rewritten to sample.php. For example, if you visit http://www.example.com/index.php, it will be automatically redirected to http://www.example.com/sample.php.Just like before, make sure the mod_rewrite module is enabled and properly configured on your server. If you have existing rules in your .htaccess file, you may need to modify the code accordingly so it works alongside your other rules.
