I have been trying to add rewrite rule to .htaccess file but it does not seem to work. I have Joomla latest version and I am trying to do it by:

# Return 403 Forbidden header and show the content of the root homepage
RewriteRule index.php/en?option=com_users&view=login [F]

So I paste it here:

RewriteEngine On
# Return 403 Forbidden header and show the content of the root homepage
RewriteRule index.php/en?option=com_users&view=login [F]

## Begin - Rewrite rules to block out some common exploits.
# If you experience problems on your site then comment out the operations listed 
# below by adding a # to the beginning of the line.
# This attempts to block the most common type of exploit `attempts` on Joomla!
#
# Block any script trying to base64_encode data within the URL.
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} base64_encode[^(]*\([^)]*\) [OR]
# Block any script that includes a <script> tag in URL.
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (<|%3C)([^s]*s)+cript.*(>|%3E) [NC,OR]
# Block any script trying to set a PHP GLOBALS variable via URL.
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} GLOBALS(=|\[|\%[0-9A-Z]{0,2}) [OR]
# Block any script trying to modify a _REQUEST variable via URL.
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} _REQUEST(=|\[|\%[0-9A-Z]{0,2})
# Return 403 Forbidden header and show the content of the root home page
RewriteRule .* index.php [F]
#
## End - Rewrite rules to block out some common exploits.

What is possibly wrong?

  • You don't seem to have a RewriteCond statement so the system probably doesn't know what rule you want to Rewrite. What are you trying to achieve? – Irata Oct 22 at 22:09
  • I want to disable access to frontend login page. Once user will try to paste to his browser it will redirect to frontpage index.php/en?option=com_users&amp;view=login – user7202022 Oct 22 at 22:11

    As this is not specifically a Joomla issue you might find more information and examples over at webmasters.stackexchange.com/search?q=%5Bhtaccess%5D+redirect – Irata Oct 22 at 22:29
  • Or you can try this search which has various ideas of how to do it, including the one you have shown here. google.com/… – Irata Oct 22 at 22:33
