Stop apache2 from serving files and redirect to specific PHP file to handle the request I have built a similar framework to Laravel or Express for Node.js and it is working nicely, that is until I make a request to the path that exists on the server.

To prevent Apache2 from serving files and always redirect requests to your web/index.php file, you can modify your .htaccess file with the following rules:
RewriteEngine On # Redirect all requests to index.php RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !=/web/index.php RewriteRule ^ /web/index.php [L] # Disable directory listing and prevent access to .env file Options -Indexes <Files ".env"> Order allow,deny Deny from all </Files>
Here's what each line of this code does: RewriteEngine On: Enables the mod_rewrite engine for this .htaccess file. RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !=/web/index.php: Prevents infinite looping by excluding requests to /web/index.php from being redirected again. RewriteRule ^ /web/index.php [L]: Redirects all requests to /web/index.php. Options -Indexes: Disables directory listing for all directories in the web directory. ... : Denies access to the .env file in the web directory. With these rules in place, all requests to your server will be redirected to web/index.php, regardless of whether the requested path exists on the server as a file or directory. Additionally, directory listing will be disabled and access to the .env file will be denied.
