If you are using Nginx, paste the below configuration in your nginx.conf file.

location / {
    try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php;
rewrite ^/sortby/(.+[^/])/sortorder/(.+[^/])/?$ /index.php?by=$1&order=$2 last;
rewrite ^/browse/(.+[^/])/sortby/(.+[^/])/sortorder/(.+[^/])/?$ /index.php?dir=$1&by=$2&order=$3 last;
rewrite ^/browse/(.+[^/])/?$ /index.php?dir=$1 last;
rewrite ^/viewing/(.+[^/])/?$ /view.php?file=$1 last;
rewrite ^/download/(.+[^/])/?$ /view.php?file=$1&dl=1 last;
