Prestashop 1.5 Friendly URL activation


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Just have installed SVN version to new host, but cant activate friendly url in Prestashop.

In backend there is an error:

 

URL rewriting (mod_rewrite) is not active on your server. If you want to use Friendly URL you must activate this mod

 

I have checked the server and it looks like rewrite mode is activated. Any other suggestions what can cause this?

Thanks.

Yeah, I just updated from SVN and did a fresh install.

 

URL rewriting (mod_rewrite) is not active on your server. If you want to use Friendly URL you must activate this mod.

 

It doesn’t even give me the option. Hello!! I'm using url rewrite on IIS 7.5 - Not everyone is going to use Apache. This is a bad idea having a test that doesn’t take this into account.

 

I wonder how I can bypass the test?

Also on a windows box, using url rewrite after import of .htaccess, you need to remove,

 

RewriteRule ^.*$ - [NC,L]

RewriteRule ^.*$ index.php [NC,L]

 

and add,

 

<rule name="Imported Rule 14" stopprocessing="true">

<match url="^.*$">

<conditions logicalgrouping="MatchAny">

<add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchtype="IsFile" pattern="" ignorecase="false">

<add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchtype="IsDirectory" pattern="" ignorecase="false">

</add></add></conditions>

<action type="None">

</action></match></rule>

<rule name="Imported Rule 15" stopprocessing="true">

<match url="^.*$">

<action type="Rewrite" url="index.php">

</action></match></rule>

I am getting the same back office error "URL rewriting (mod_rewrite) is not active on your server. If you want to use Friendly URLs you must activate this mod." and then 404 url errors on front office when rewrite is enabled. I just installed the latest version from scratch. I know for a fact url rewrite is enabled on my LAMP server.

with 1.5.0.17 I'm having also the error displayed in back office "URL rewriting (mod_rewrite) is not active on your server. If you want to use Friendly URLs you must activate this mod" but in my case I can enable it and have no other errors in front end or BO.

 

BTW I'm using the 1.4.9 default Prestashop theme and two days ago suddenly was unable to add items to cart has described here http://www.prestashop.com/forums/topic/191455-solved15017-impossible-to-add-the-product-to-the-cart-no-errorthrown/ , I solved it enabling friendly URL in BO

There is no further response to fix this. We are facing the same issue in PS 1.5.1. Surely something serious is wrong which is missed by PS team. I respect you guys, its just that we want to use your 1.5.1 version and we are not able to do so,

 

Please note that we are the ones using PS from version 1.1 or 1.2

 

Can anyone let me know how to enable this mod rewrite in Cpanel or WHM. Please explain Step by step if you can

Has anyone actually posted this as a bug? I hate having to go post bugs in a different system. I would think that this many people complaining on the forum should be enough to just initiate action on Prestashop's end anyway to correct the issue and then let us know.

After activating rewrite url, are your CMS links working properly on the top menu bar.

 

Just try and confirm.

 

follow the test

1. activate url friendly thing

2.on your top menu bar, just choose the cms pages.

3.click on links on FO

 

The magic that happens here is that it opens categories. LOL

I seems just a wrong detection of rewrite_mod existence.

This detection is done in Tools::modRewriteActive();

 

If you want force to go forward, you can have a try to force it return true to see if it works or not.

 

In file /classes/Tools.php. find this two lines

 

 

public static function modRewriteActive()
{

 

 

Add this lie right after above two lines

 

return true;

 

This may or may not work. If it is not working, please restore back to original.

I also had the same problem.

 

PS team please what is going on? How is this bug still a problem?

 

I am on version 1.4.9 and really want to upgrade but I try nearly every couple of weeks hoping the newest version is stable.

Hi I am still having this problem.

 

I duplicated my 1.4.9 store to a subdomain.

 

I copied my database to a new database.

 

I pointed the new store to that database and changed Base URI to /upgradetest/

 

I autoupgraded. Everything seemed to have gone fine. No error messages.

 

Just to be sure, I regenerated my .htaccess file.

 

Now if I go to my new, upgraded store at mydomain.com/upgradetest it works fine.

 

If I click on a category, the page has a redirect loop. This problem disapears when I disable the friendly URL option.

I have solved the problem.

 

Delete the .htaccess file in the root of your 1.5 shop.

 

Set both friendly and canonical url in B.O to "No" and click save.

 

Set both friendly and canonical url in B.O to "Yes" and click save.

 

The .htaccess file is regenerated and works

This solution not work for me and my server is not the problem because i have another shop in the same server with PS 1.4.7 and it work perfectly, when the friendly and canonical url is active, i can´t login in my shop and when added some product at cart, click on confirm and "cart is empty", this problem is in firefox and all time appear the message:

Hello sQs, what version of PS are you running? Also, is this a fresh install or is this a Upgraded version?

Hi, i have made a fresh install in spanish with PS 1.5.2, this shop is a project for a client and still deactivated, if you need access to this you can send me one IP by PM for add the IP in maintenance or, i can make some user for you to enter in BO and add your IP address by your self to access in FO, by the way, i have created new issue in bug tracker, you can see here:

I can't imagine this or any other bugs will be fixed in a hurry and the friendly URL is very important (especially for ranking).

 

Try my solution a few times and clear all your cache. It should work.

I tried that but it doesn't work for me, do you use firefox?

Thanks. It looks to me that all the custom URL are generated with a 1(2,3...) in front of the friendly URL.

if calling a page "TESTA" then the url is /store/1-TESTA (and the URL in the product listing is .../store/TESTA

None of those show up anyway.

i have 2 other shop installed with same version 1.5.2 but the friendly url are working fine.

 

all is installed on localhost WAMP

 

this is my httpd.conf

#

# This is the main Apache HTTP server configuration file. It contains the

# configuration directives that give the server its instructions.

# See <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2> for detailed information.

# In particular, see

# <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/directives.html>

# for a discussion of each configuration directive.

#

# Do NOT simply read the instructions in here without understanding

# what they do. They're here only as hints or reminders. If you are unsure

# consult the online docs. You have been warned.

#

# Configuration and logfile names: If the filenames you specify for many

# of the server's control files begin with "/" (or "drive:/" for Win32), the

# server will use that explicit path. If the filenames do *not* begin

# with "/", the value of ServerRoot is prepended -- so "logs/foo.log"

# with ServerRoot set to "C:/Program Files/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2" will be interpreted by the

# server as "C:/Program Files/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/logs/foo.log".

#

# NOTE: Where filenames are specified, you must use forward slashes

# instead of backslashes (e.g., "c:/apache" instead of "c:\apache").

# If a drive letter is omitted, the drive on which Apache.exe is located

# will be used by default. It is recommended that you always supply

# an explicit drive letter in absolute paths to avoid confusion.

#

# ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's

# configuration, error, and log files are kept.

#

# Do not add a slash at the end of the directory path. If you point

# ServerRoot at a non-local disk, be sure to point the LockFile directive

# at a local disk. If you wish to share the same ServerRoot for multiple

# httpd daemons, you will need to change at least LockFile and PidFile.

#

ServerRoot "c:/wamp/bin/apache/apache2.2.22"

#

# Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or

# ports, instead of the default. See also the <VirtualHost>

# directive.

#

# Change this to Listen on specific IP addresses as shown below to

# prevent Apache from glomming onto all bound IP addresses.

Also on a windows box, using url rewrite after import of .htaccess, you need to remove,

 

RewriteRule ^.*$ - [NC,L]

RewriteRule ^.*$ index.php [NC,L]

 

and add,

 

<rule name="Imported Rule 14" stopprocessing="true">

<match url="^.*$">

<conditions logicalgrouping="MatchAny">

<add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchtype="IsFile" pattern="" ignorecase="false">

<add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchtype="IsDirectory" pattern="" ignorecase="false">

</add></add></conditions>

<action type="None">

</action></match></rule>

<rule name="Imported Rule 15" stopprocessing="true">

<match url="^.*$">

<action type="Rewrite" url="index.php">

</action></match></rule>

 

webconfig.zip

Hi guys, I just have installed 1.5.4.1 version, but can't activate Friendly URL, problem is the same:

URL rewriting (mod_rewrite) is not active on your server, or it is not possible to check your server configuration. If you want to use Friendly URLs, you must activate this mod.

Does anyone find some sort of solution other than described above?

Is there a way to check if mod_rewrite is enabled on Lighttpd?

 

I tried this, the result was negative but i'm not sure if this method is a 100% fail proof with Lighttpd as with Apache.

I do get the message in back office but my Friendly URL's seem to work fine in general in my site.

 

Hosting company says rewrite is enabled but i'm having issues like adding to cart not working, can't check products to compare, quick search not working and i suspect is a Friendly URL & Lighttpd & mod_rewrite combination not setup correctly.

 

(I'm on 1.5.4.1 btw).

 

Edit

 

All issues fixed by hosting company.

All I did to fix it was change .htaccess file permissions and that took the message away.

Permissions I set were 704 which is Read, Write & Execute

 

Although when I put it back at 604 which is Read & Write, the message still didn't come back.

 

Hope this helps someone.

Can anyone please check the post http://www.prestasho...ly-url-enabled/ and suggest what needs to be done?

 

Our system is already has use the legacy image filesystem as no. Also we are using all custom images.

 

Will moving images to new file system help? mod-rewrite is also enabled on our server and URLs are also getting created properly.

 

Images are showing properly in admin panel.

Abhijeet

I seems just a wrong detection of rewrite_mod existence.

This detection is done in Tools::modRewriteActive();

 

If you want force to go forward, you can have a try to force it return true to see if it works or not.

 

In file /classes/Tools.php. find this two lines

 

 

public static function modRewriteActive()
{

Add this lie right after above two lines

 

return true;
This may or may not work. If it is not working, please restore back to original.

 

 

 

I made this and the error message it's not showing anymore, but I still get the 404 in the front page :(

 

I don't know what to do anymore! I really need to fix this
