Avoid routing through bootstrap of non existent files

In some cases you may encounter missing files: images, css or js files.
All those missing files are processed by the current bootstrap: index.php

If the session is set to regenerate on each request, as a normal security measure,
the currently logged user is logged off, because the session ID is different now.

To avoid this, below the following line

RewriteEngine On

add the line :

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} (\.gif|\.jpg|\.png|\.css|\.js)$ [OR]

Save and don’t forget to test.

Even though it’s a well known fact that real men do not test…
