Removing SiteID and index.cfm from Mura CMS

In this article we will be going through the way to change your Mura CMS URLS from:


To remove the siteID directory in the URL:

  1. In the local contentRenderer.cfc ([www/[siteID]/includes/contentRenderer.cfc) uncomment the function named getURLStem() or paste the below code at the base of the file:

    <!--- This is to used when removing both siteID and index.cfm from urls--->
    <cffunction name="getURLStem" access="public" output="false" returntype="string">
    <cfargument name="siteID">
    <cfargument name="filename">
    <cfif arguments.filename neq ''>
    <cfreturn "/" & arguments.filename & "/"/>
    <cfreturn "/" />
  2. Edit www/index.cfm and replace:
    <cfinclude template="tasks/content/redirect.cfm">
    <cfinclude template="tasks/content/contentServerRoot.cfm">

The .htaccess file / code to remove the index.cfm:

RewriteEngine On

# If it's a real path, just serve it
RewriteCond  %{REQUEST_FILENAME}  -f  [OR]
RewriteCond  %{REQUEST_FILENAME}  -d
RewriteRule  .  -  [L]

# Redirect if no trailing slash
RewriteRule  ^(.+[^/])$  $1/  [R=301,L]

# Rewrite Mura CMS URL paths
RewriteRule  ^(.*)$  /index.cfm%{REQUEST_URI}  [L]

The old /[siteID]/ urls will still work after making these changes.
