// Replicate the effects of basic "index.php"-hiding mod_rewrite rules
// Tested working under FatFreeFramework 2.0.6 through 2.0.12.
$_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'] = str_replace(__DIR__, '', __FILE__);
// Replicate the FatFree/WordPress/etc. .htaccess "serve existing files" bit
$url_parts = parse_url($_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"]);
$_req = rtrim($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . $url_parts['path'], '/' . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR);
if (__FILE__ !== $_req && __DIR__ !== $_req && file_exists($_req)) {
return false; // serve the requested resource as-is.
// TODO: The rest of your index.php goes here
