reactjs - migrating php app to react with SSO


I have a php application which i am trying to migrate to react. i have managed to build home page.


presentation layer - (SSO)

application layer


I have an SSO page which is hit on every request which I have no control over. this page authenticates users and submits credentials to backend using url/api/user/sso where my.htaccess files redirects it to/index-api.php which i then deal with and redirect user to/index.html which loads react home page.

when trying to use [email protected] + the routes do not work. if i go to/#/roster my SSO page kicks in which then turns url to/index.html/#/roster. if i try/roster it saysfile not found

        new ExtractTextPlugin("[name].bundle.css")


the routing works if i do init load with index.html and then click within the react app on any link it renders components fine. its when trying to pre-route a url without init on/index.html

so when i open browser and then point to a route like/Hello it will not work, but when i go to/index.html then click a link to go to/Hello it will work.




I needed the following in the bottom ofhtaccess file to redirect everything toindex.html

RewriteRule ^index\.html$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.html [L]
