Remove App Directory from URL

Hi, I'm using the Phalcon Vagrant Box for my project. My project is located in vagrants www folder. The problem now is that I have the project folder in my URL. So I can access my app with But I want something like this:

What is the best way to get rid of the project-dir in the URL? I assume some .htaccess magic has to happen? :-) Thanks for your help!

Why just not set nginx/apache root directory for project-dir ?

# /var/www/.htaccess

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule  ^$ project-dir/    [L]
    RewriteRule  ((?s).*) project-dir/$1 [L]

  1. Please provide a full path to the phalcon project.
