Products Pages Problems
« on: August 04, 2016, 10:23:32 PM »
I log in to Admin and go to a view of my home page.  Featured products are there and my 2 categories are in the breadcrumbs.  All looks good.  When I click on a product, I get the HTTP 404 error page of Page Not Found.  Is there something I'm missing on how to link products?

Hello.

Maybe you have enabled Seo URL's but forgot to configure your .htaccess file?

Thanks Basara.  But I'm not very adept at coding, so I'll explain what I see.

In AbanteCart Admin: System - Settings - System: Use SEO URL's is ON

In cPanel - File Manager - public_html: .htaccess has the following data in it when opened for editing (I don't have a file named htaccess.txt):

# To set your custom php.ini, add the following line to this file:
# suphp_configpath /home/yourusername/path/to/php.ini
# php_value mbstring.func_overload 4 # Required for PWSB support. Please do not uncomment this line.

The AbanteCart manual says this: "Use SEO URLs: To use SEO URL's Apache module mod-rewrite must be installed and you need to rename the htaccess.txt file to .htaccess"

I don't know how to check to see if I have "Apache module mod-rewrite" installed, or even how to install it.  Am I in the correct file directory?  Any and all help is very much appreciated.

mod_rewrite is loaded on all my host servers by default.

Referencing my post above, the .htaccess file in public_html folder does not have any "RewriteBase" instructions in it.  My store is in a subfolder, but how can I change the RewriteBase if it's not in .htaccess?

Finally, it's fixed.  I was not looking in the correct file folder for the .htaccess.txt file.  I made the name change to .htaccess and also included the subfolder name and my products are enabled now.  The SEO URL's fix worked.  Thanks very much for your help.
