Laravel's .htaccess to remove "public" from URL

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On

    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ public/$1 [L]
</IfModule>

Place this file in Laravel's root directory.

Please note that this isn't the recommended way. A safer way is place Laravel's files outside your web server root and make the Laravel's public directory your web server root. Don't forget to update the paths.php file.

I tried this and it doesn't work for me - I keep getting a 404 error from Laravel. Any thoughts on how I could troubleshoot?

I had the same problem as tridnguyen. This method only works if the base laravel folder is the webroot, it wont work if the base laravel folder is a subfolder of the webroot

just for the guys using IIS like me, my solution (workaround, I'd say) was to strip index.php from the url by importing the standard .htaccess and then I create a virtual directory, say "employees" pointing to D:\inetpub\wwwroot\lv\employees\public; then navigating thru localhost/employees/controller/method seems to work fine.
