SEO Addon - Error occurred

When i active SEO Addons, I have an error :

SEO URLs can't work for now - they were disabled.<br />
Please check your webserver and URL manipulation engine settings
```<br />
<br />
I enabled mod_rewrite on Apache.view phpinfo()at this address : [url=""][/url]<br />
<br />
Please help me.

Enter the following in your .htaccess:

DirectoryIndex index.html index.php

RewriteEngine on

Some hostings require RewriteBase to be uncommented


Your store url is

So “RewriteBase” should be:

RewriteBase /store/cart

RewriteBase /

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !.(png|gif|ico|swf|jpe?g|js|css)$

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

RewriteRule . index.php?sef_rewrite=1 [L,QSA]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} ./catalog/.

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME}/index.html !-f

RewriteRule . index.php?sef_rewrite=1 [L,QSA]

Hi there

Mostly this happens when the whole htaccess file is missing.

But when you are sure that is present then it's a server configuration issue.


I have tried every .htaccess combination I can think of, nothing works on one of my sites. Very strange as it's hosted on a dedicated server with another 2 CS-Cart sites which do not have this problem. No amount of uninstalling, flushing cache, re-installing, etc, helps. I get the same error message every time despite the phpinfo for that hosting environment having the same credentials as the other 2 'working' sites.

Would be awesome if someone could find a solution to this problem.

Step #1

If you have shell access (SSH); run these commands from the site root.

(cPanel: /home//)

[font=courier new,courier,monospace]rm -Rf /public_html/var/cache/* -v[/font]

[font=courier new,courier,monospace]rm -Rf /public_html/var/compiled/* -v[/font]

Step #2

Delete the .htaccess file and reupload the default CS-Cart .htaccess file.
