Hi,
I would like to know how to set up the url rewriting on my server.
I was integrating my design in my local server without any problems, and since i changed it to my web server the url rewriting wont work,
i did the same instalation but unfortunately my product url still stay like this (http://www.mysite.com/catalog/product/view/id/1/s/blackl-shirt), i assume that is the original path. I’m using the original .htacces without any modifications and i enabled url rewriting in configuration/web panel. my question is Do i need to install any mod in apache ? if someone can help me…

I hope my description is clear enough.

thanks a lot.

Hey,

You need to edit your .htaccess file and uncomment the following line (if they are not already uncommented):

RewriteEngine on

and most importantly:

RewriteBase /magento/

(you can put here your magento root folder path relative to web root)

Hope this help!
Good luck.
