sudo /Applications/ /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/etc/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf


<VirtualHost *:80>
  DocumentRoot "/Users/[usuario]/[ruta-proyecto]"
  <Directory "/Users/[usuario]/[ruta-proyecto]">
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php/$1 [L]

Friendly URLs in XAMPP

Update: this post is pretty old. I recommend you give Local a try.

A very common requirement for today’s apps is having “friendly” or clean URLs. We can achieve that easily in XAMPP, following these steps:

First, enable Apache’s mod_rewrite module:

Edit httpd.conf file under [xampp-install-directory]/apache/conf. On Windows, that’s typically C:\xampp.

#LoadModule rewrite_module modules/

So it stays:
LoadModule rewrite_module modules/

Lastly, search for AllowOverride None and replace with AllowOverride All.

In order for the changes to take effect, we need to restart the server.
