I have activated the URL rewrite mode for http://www.loulou.ro (uses PS 126.96.36.199) and I am getting the “page not found” error for the homepage and CMS pages.
How do I do this correctly in PS 188.8.131.52? Where do I find the Generators section so that I can (re)generate the .htaccess file (if this is what I must do).
Nice tutorial, pretty good for starters. I’ve got a problem though. I’ve got a PrestaShop website (made by other people) and they want to add a new module. I’ve installed this module and keep on getting 404 errors. I started investigating the cause and got the answers I got were “regenerate .htaccess”. This tutorial is for creating the .htaccess. My new question is: can I just regenerate it without any troubles or should I check something first? If you can answer me this, I’ll be very happy. Sorry for bad English, not my native language. Thanks.
I’m not sure if you can regenerate your .htaccess file without causing problems since I don’t know if you or anyone else has customized that file since it was installed. Regenerating the file will essentially reset it to it’s original form, which may or may not work for you.
If you decide to regenerate the file, be sure you make a copy of the original .htaccess file and rename it something like “.htaccess-old.”
After you make that copy, if you find that regenerating the .htaccess files gives you trouble, just delete the newly regenerated file and change the renamed “.htaccess-old” back to “.htaccess.” Be sure you don’t include any of the quotes I’ve used. They are just there to help clarify my meaning.
Let me know how that goes.
It helped a lot Curt, God bless you.
Your welcome Poema.
Thanks for the feedback.
I have found the solution. I restore back the .htaccess file from the old backup and it works just fine.
I guess messing up with .htaccess file need extra precaution-the backup~
Nice tutorial, but i have some issue in getting the default settings of .htaccess file, somehow i cannot login to backoffice and generate the new .htaccess. Where i can get the default settings of .htaccess? My prestashop is install in subdirectory example: http://www.shop.example.com
You’ll need to provide more information.
Let me know.
