Can't acces route on live server


I have uploaded my laravel project to my web server, into the public_html folder and i got index.php files from my hosting company (they told me to do it like this). Now, I can access all of my routes except one, , so the / or no / after .com, which should take me to home page, as it is set in my routes/controller, however it takes me to which doesnt exist. Everything works locally but I dont know how to set up my .htaccess or index.php or something third, to make my website show homepage when i type my web address.

My .htaccess code:

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^ index.php [L]

My index.php code :

$uri = urldecode(

if ($uri !== '/' && file_exists(__DIR__.'/public'.$uri)) {
return false;
require_once __DIR__.'/public/index.php';

Check root directory path for your domain in C-Panel. You need to change it and navigate to your laravel-project-directory/public. Also, you need to set permission to 755 for storage directory and subdirectories and files to allow laravel to write log.
